MEMENTO



A masterpiece of cinema.

(2000)
Christopher Nolan, dir.


Guy Pearce as Leonard

 Suppose you and your wife
had been attacked in your own home.
You wife was killed and the attack left you
with a brain injury
such that your old memories stayed intact,
but you couldn't really make any new ones...



So you tattoo important information
all over your body,
Information that will help lead you to the man
who murdered your wife and damaged your memory.
 

And you depend on Polaroid photographs
to tell you who people are...
...because you forget them after 10 minutes.

Teddy & Leonard

Then suppose the director told you this story by first showing you the end of the film,
and then showing you the story backwards in intervals of about 10 minutes...
