    The Directors Series-Part III: The Christopher Nolan Retrospective
    "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.

    "I have this condition."

    Wow. I'm speechless at the movie I just watched. It wasn't just a movie… Honestly, it was an experience. I've never been so concentrated watching a movie in my whole life. My brain was working the whole time, and I don't know if it's the effect wanted of if I was just really tired, but I felt like I had "this condition" too at some points, trying to remember what happened and not knowing who to…

    Clever and non linear as this is, I was expecting a bit more. I like the concept of the story working backwards, but it wasn't as compelling as I thought it would be. I can see the link to Inception here, so maybe this was a practice run.

    I can not believe I've waited this long to view/experience this film. It was amazing.

    A movie that uses memory loss as a device which in turn messes with your memory the whole time, making you ask questions; is what you saw in the last frame real or did I just make it up?

    This movie is a work of art that makes you work to appreciate the art.

    From start to finish (......or finish to start?) it's highly engaging…

    What can I say about this film that hasn’t already been said. I loved it, and need to rewatch to understand what the hell was going on. I know this review seemed very lazy, but I’m just in awe of what I just saw. So overall, as you can see, I thought the film was incredible, and I will give “Memento” an Outstanding 5/5 Stars.

    “Memento” tells the story of Lenny Shelby, played by Guy Pearce. He is on a…

    This is probably one of the most original and complex films, I have ever scene from its aloof and queer soundtrack that works so precise to convey one mans struggle of coming terms with his memory loss and the loss of his wife.
    To its really brain challenging storytelling.

    Memento has the most decisive and caring characters, the main role is superbly acted by Guy Pearce that makes him one of the talented and under appreciated actors to date. And…
