    As a die-hard- Christopher- Nolan- fan, this movie was on my 'to watch list' for a veeery long time. And finally, I watched it.
    I enjoyed. I had high expectations of this as the first debut film of Christopher Nolan. But really, this was possibly the best movie experience I had in at least 10 years (well, maybe together with Inception).

    The story is about a guy named Lenny (Leonard) (Guy Pierce) who has a fatal injury, that resulted in…

    I wish I could forget this movie and watch it again for the first time.

    Could not get through this film without talking about theories.

    Loved the flow of the narrative.

    I'm not a big fan of Christopher Nolan but his early work was phenomenal. This is his best film by far. To me, it wasn't confusing besides the ending but after a few watches, you will definitely understand everything in this movie. How it is told backwards I think takes a lot of effort as a screenwriter with getting the plot correct with no flaws. To me, I feel Nolan will never make another Memento even though he has made…

    Still Nolan's best film, but it's still no masterpiece. Fifteen years later, the set-up does seem more of gimmick than my teenage self wanted to believe. But I'll tell myself a lie here and there just so I can enjoy this again (see what I did there?).

    Incredible. This movie is incredible. The story is told in such a fashion that if you're watching for the first time, you will be pretty clueless until there's about 15 minutes left. The entire movie you will be trying to formulate what you think might happen, but Nolan is able to keep just enough information out of your grasp at all times to where you just have to keep watching. I loved the way we were able to piece the…

    I've recently learned I appreciate psychological thrillers, and Memento is definitely how you do one. It's a complex mystery that grows darker and more mysterious with each layer that gets peeled off, and the questions don't stop right up until the very end. The twists are as many as they are surprising, and the ambiguous ending left me both confused and shocked.

    While the idea of a story told in reverse seems like it would be hard to follow, Memento

    A particular trend exists in Hollywood. An indie director makes a few acclaimed films, but the movies do not attract a mainstream audience. Hollywood then sees the potential in this director, and snatches him or her up to direct some big studio features. Then, and only then, does the director enter into mainstream conversation. Memento was that acclaimed indie film for Christopher Nolan. Without Memento, we never would have been blessed with The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, or any of…

    una idea brillante llevada brillantemente a la realidad. además, con mucho humor (sobre todo cortesía de john pantoliano, actor sin miedo), cosa rara en eso que hoy conocemos como "christopher nolan".

    después de verla varias veces, sólo le quitaría una cosa. está bastante al principio de la trama (o sea, al final de la historia). es un diálogo entre leonard y burt, el recepcionista del motel. va así:

    i have this condition. i can't make any new memories. next…
