Memento Suffering short-term memory loss after a head injury, Leonard Shelby embarks on a grim quest to find out who murdered his wife. Shelby snaps Polaroids of people and places, jotting down contextual notes on the backs of photos to aid in his search.
Memento (2000), directed by Christopher Nolan. *** Leonard Shelby: I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can't remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world's still there. Do I believe the world's still there? Is it still out there?... Yeah. We all need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are. I'm no different.
Memento is a great movie about a dude with issues with his memory and trying to piece together the right identity. You will be shocked to find who is the true enemy and suspense will trample over your sweet serenity.
Memento: the movie that made Chris Nolan famous. A truly original thriller as it is told backwards and through the eyes of a hero with no memory. In other hands it could have been a gimmick but with Nolan's deft handling it really works.
