Memento

[15]

United States 2000, 113 mins
Director: Christopher Nolan
Starring: Joe Pantoliano, Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss

Christopher Nolan's award-winning feature debut FOLLOWING garnered critical acclaim for its inventive method of storytelling.

MEMENTO, a thriller centering around a man suffering from short-term memory loss, also defies narrative convention with effective results.

Guy Pearce stars as Leonard Shelby who since the brutal murder of his wife has suffered from a rare disorder which renders him incapable of making new memories.

The result is that any encounter or event he experiences will be forgotten within minutes of it occurring.

His method of getting around this problem is to take endless Polaroid pictures, making a note of who or what they are of.

He also writes lists to remember what he has to do and if something is very important he tattoos his body with a message.

In this manner he tries to unravel the mystery surrounding his wife's death, the last clear memory he has.

MEMENTO is almost entirely made up of a handful of scenes which replay throughout the film as Shelby's understanding of events alter.
