Every once in a while we like to pay tribute to a landmark film by encapsulating it in three animated GIFs. For this installment, we’re honoring Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the 2004 sci-fi rom-com from Charlie Kaufman and Michel Gondry, out on a new Blu-ray this week.

In the comments, let us know which three GIFs you would have selected, and nominate the film we should take on next.
