Directed by Christopher Nolan

Alliance Home Video | July 1, 2011 | DVD

Memento is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
Memento tells the story of Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce), a former insurance investigator who witnesses a brutal attack on his wife. Knocked unconscious, Leonard wakes up with a rare brain condition--he no longer possesses short-term memory. He can remember his name and all the details of his past, but he can no longer make new memories. The film begins with Leonard killing the man he's looking for. From there Mememto unravels a compellingly disconcerting trail back to the start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best twist endings I have ever seen This is my go-to recommendation for anyone looking for a movie with a good twist ending. Underated but strong performances all around, especially an emotion evoking Guy Pearce as a man who can't make new memories trying to find his wife's killer. The events are told in reverse order of 10- 15 minute blocks of story which can be confusing if you are not in the mood to pay attention to detail, but it couldn't have been told any other way Stick with it, it has an ending that had my friend and I turn to each other and say "Woah, that was an awesome ending"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome to watch the first time I caught the end of this movie on the movie network one day, and I was truly blown away. I thought it could of been my favourite movie of all time, and that was just from watching the ending. So I went out and bought it to watch it from the beginning. i found, after watching it the second time, I didn't like it as much as I did when it was on TV. i can't explain why. Guy Pearce gives a good performance, as a guy who can't make any new memories. Carrie-Ann Moss and Joe Pantoliano were good as well. Christopher Nolan has become one of the most well known directors in Hollywood, and after watching this movie, I can understand why people like him so much. Great movie, but after first watching my option on it went down a little.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true cinematic gem! I first watched this movie, trying to figure things out, knowing that all of the scenes actually occur in the reverse order than they are supposed to. The second time was still great; things made more logical sense. It has been a few years since I've seen it, but am willing to pay what is think is a high price just to own it. Has anyone watched the dvd, starting with the final scene and worked their way backwards? Very cool. Very good story and acting.

Description

IN THEATRES: MARCH 16, 2001 (NY/LA) In MEMENTO, a man and his wife are attacked and robbed. The woman dies, and the man is left with both a serious head injury that gives him memory loss, and an urgent thirst for revenge. As he sets off in pursuit of his wife's killer, he becomes increasingly confused about what he is doing, so he tattoos notes onto his skin and takes Polaroid pictures to remind himself of what has transposed. An intricate mystery with a backwards chronology, MEMENTO is written and directed by Christopher Nolan, based on a short story by his brother, Jonathan Nolan.
