Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

How great would it be if the memory-wiping technology used in this film actually existed today? Well, it sort of does. Researchers have been using new drugs to target specific memories in rats and erase them; no helmet or extensive memory-mapping required. There's nothing available for humans just yet though, so you'll just have to keep living with those painful elementary school memories for now.

    Nadream70 its definitely been proven that reality tv didn’t actualy become “mainstream” til the 2000’s. So yeah there’s been reality tv BEFORE truman but it didn’t become super relevant in our society til just after.

    it’s aslo fair to say that we indulge in reality tv just like the watchers of truman did because something like the real world was more like entertainment, but now we watch things like real house wives or kardashian whatever and we’re actually invested like we think we know these people, their our friends, ect. we buy their products, we make them famous on social media. Its a completely different realm you know? very interesting….
