    If Following introduced Christopher Nolan to Hollywood then Memento well and truly put him on the map.

    Memento is truly a remarkable film about a man, suffering from short-term memory loss, who uses notes and tattoos on his body to try and find the man who raped and murdered his wife.

    This isn't just a simple whodunnit though. Nolan expertly splits his film into two separate sequences of scenes; a black and white series in chronological order and a coloured…

    The trick of being told forwards and backwards may seem like a gimmick, but working backwards makes so much sense because the viewer has no previous knowledge of the situation just like the protagonist. Love it, everything from direction to score and little bits of humor that shows Nolan can do that when necessary. I really would love to see an in depth discussion of this at some point since it came before internet culture that we have today and because it lends itself to so many interpretations and is just fantastic.

    I should probably wait a second time to see this before rating, but I won't remember then. So I'll rate now and if I remember after viewing #2 I can update then. In any case, Memento is an interesting movie based around perpetual short-term memory loss. It starts with the most recent event, then traces back trough so you see how we ended up at that point.

    It is a well-played film in that even though the farther into the…

    I've danced around my distaste for this movie for a long time, but fuck it. Almost totally tedious once you strip away the gimmicks.

    Part Six of Preparing (As Much As Humanly Possible) For Interstellar

    Memento is one of Nolan's most gripping works, a puzzle-box neo-noir of intimate and tragic beauty, all tied in with a narrative that is told uniquely and effectively. Completely dropping any sign of a linear story or framework, the film goes off the rails in the finest way possible, culminating in a film that is funny, powerful, saddening, and wonderfully cinematic.

    Guy Pierce is at his finest here, playing…

    Memento is one of my favorite films of all time. I first saw it when it came out on DVD, after having read everything I could find on the film since it never came to my area. Around the late 90s-early 2000s, I was absorbing as much film - especially independent - that I could, forming my taste in the movies. So when Memento came, completely fucking with my idea of what film structure could be, it blew my mind…

    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.
