Memento was a movie that I've wanted to watch for a very, very long time. It's been on my list of shame ever since I can remember and I was very happy to finally watch it last night, for my Nolan marathon. I have to say, although this film isn't perfect by any means, it's one hell of a movie. Memento is told in reverse order, which for most directors, wouldn't work. But with Nolan being the mastermind that he…
A brilliant (I really don't use that word often, so it still means something) study of film narrative. Nearly perfect from a story standpoint.

I've heard plenty of great things about this movie from fellow film fans, but It took me THIS damn long to finally see it. I'm glad I finally did too.
+ Love that the movie plot goes in reverse.
+ Excellent acting from Guy Pierce.
+ Excellent directing from Nolan.
- I was a little confused in the beginning.
Definitely worth a watch!

Who would have ever thought that the man who directed this would go on to make such big budget films that are towering hits and he would go to be able to make any he wants to in the eyes of WB. I hope that in the future he will team back up with Guy and they will make another lower budget film that will be as good as this film is. This film should not work nearly as well…
Great movie and what made me love watch Guy Pierce in movies.
Graaaaaandeeeeeee film! U inizia all'indrio
A perfect film for a bad day.
While incredibly hard to follow at points, Memento is still a very solid and highly unique crime thriller with a strong performance from Guy Pearce, perfect direction from Christopher Nolan and a great twist ending.
Why is this all backwards? It's does nothing for the story, it makes the pacing awkward, and it's just annoying.
One of Christopher Nolan's best films. At first, I really didn't get the hang of the moving backwards plot, but damn, Nolan loves to have that cliffhanger. But, of course, if you've really paid attention, we all know what this film was all about.
Brilliant editing. Nice actors. Juxtaposition of past and present meeting in the middle was precisely woven. I wish I could see more of these types of films.
if my house was on fire, and i could only save five films, this would be the first one i take. maybe the best film ever made, in my opinion. i love how advanced it is, even though how simple made it is.
