    The main factor that makes Christopher Nolan's Memento so arresting and unique is its distorted narrative that made it feel like a sort of cinematic jigsaw puzzle. However, I'd dare to say that even with its story told in chronological order, it would also be a great film. Nolan's taut direction, its engrossing storyline, and Guy Pearce's brilliant performance also make it a standout movie in every way.

    It's been almost 6 years or so since I watched Memento. I did forget quite a bit about the movie and it's complications. I decided to re-watch it today, and I was just blown away. I wonder why I took so long to re-watch this movie, as this movie was designed to be re-watched. Memento is arguably Christopher Nolan's greatest original work, and one of the greatest original movie's I've ever seen. It had such masterful storytelling along with incredible…

    "Memory can change the shape of a room; it can change the color of a car. And memories can be distorted. They're just an interpretation, they're not a record, and they're irrelevant if you have the facts."- Leonard Shelby

    Christopher Nolan's sophomore effort, Memento still remains one of his absolute best. From the acting, to the brilliant nonlinear structure, to the atmospheric music, Memento is just a superb film. Even after several viewings, I still find myself trying to piece…

    A perfect piece of filmaking some may call it confusing but watch it twice like I did and you will understand that the movie is actually backwards and it is actually a masterpiece after all the crap I have given guy Pearce over the years in this movie he is phenomonal

    Cold and pointless. Reverse narrative is a gimmick.

    "We all lie to ourselves to be happy."

    It's easy to dismiss Christopher Nolan's Memento for it's non-linear narrative and call it confusing at times, but honestly, this is one of the finest neo-noir films of the twentieth century and is all around just a damn good film. Guy Pearce plays Leonard Shelby, a man with anterograde amnesia after being attacked by men who raped and murdered his wife. Leonard can remember…

    The fractured narrative adds for confusion, nail-biting action, and a magnificent movie all around.

    Memento (2000)

    A brilliantly complex and clever mystery that Nolan slowly unravels backwards.

    I remember being blown away by this the first time I saw it. Even though I didn't remember the twists and turns of the film, it didn't have the impact of the first time. Still, it's a pretty entertaining mystery.
