    I know a lot of people who have come away from 'Memento' saying it was too confusing, and to be honest I think that's part of the point. I've seen this film 3-4 times now, and even still I tend to doubt my hypothesis on what actually happened by the end of the film. I notice new things every time that sway my mind, and that's really what Nolan was striving for here.

    Our main character, Lenny (perfectly played by…

    Just wow. That storytelling is one of the best I've ever seen - although I'm quite biased since this kind of twisted storytelling is one of my favorites.

    masterpiece, must watch.

    Behind the rather tiresome reverse-chronological narrative style is a very interesting examination of identity in terms of Leonard’s denial and fantasies all mixed in with the mysterious figure of Sammy Jankis. It seems a shame to me that this theme isn’t closer to the surface in a film which prefers repeated reminders of Leonard’s anterograde amnesia condition often daftly played for comedy.

    Es genial la forma cómo está contada la historia mediante constantes analepsis y prolepsis. Nos encontramos en cada nueva escena totalmente desconcertados, sin saber qué ha pasado antes.

    Está hecho así para transmitir la misma frustración que siente el protagonista. De esta manera se logra que los espectadores se identifiquen con su problema, afrontando cada nuevo reto sin saber cómo ni por qué se ha llegado a él.

    A movie that tells it's story backwards is not a new concept but it is one that is not often used, and it can lead to some good mysteries. It's a fun watch and you kinda feel sympathy to the main character. You do have to pay attention to everything because if you don't, then you won't know what is happening in the story. Is making something complicated on purpose good for a movie? Depends, in this case however, it…

    No sé como a Nolan se le pudo ocurrir una cosa como esta, pero gracias a dios que se le ocurrió.

    Nunca disfruté tanto que una película me estresera como esta, te hace pensar a cada minuto, de como un mismo rompecabezas ya armado le van apareciendo nuevas piezas a cada minuto, haciendo que toda la situación cambie. Solamente pienso la gran complejidad que debió tener crear esta película, y hablo de complejidad desde todo punto de vista técnico.

    Alabado sea Nolan.

    The central idea of Memento is fascinating in that it is a thriller built around a main character who cannot remember anything for more than a few minutes. That is combined with a reversed narrative structure where we see the ending and as we go backwards in time we realize that we know less and less about the character and the situations. It’s great to watch and figure things out and the repetition of scenes works well too. I should…
