A hampered search

by Sivvie on Sep 17, 2010

This is a quiet, complex, cryptic film that makes the viewer as uncomfortable and fragmented as the flawed hero, Guy Pearce, who looks remarkably like a young Henry Fonda. The film is in colour interspersed with black and white; the colour film goes backwards, while the black and white parts go forward chronologically as does time as we know it. It's a puzzle for the brain and after viewing, remains disturbingly in the mind. The story is of Leonard (Guy Pearce), hampered by a damaged brain which has no short-term memory, searching for the man who raped and killed his wife in their apartment. Other characters help the viewer piece the storyline together - Teddy Gammell (Joe Pantoliano) and Natalie (Carrie-Anne Moss), but mostly we are imprisoned in seedy situations with Leonard, with undesirables making appearances to further upset our equilibrium. It is all slightly claustrophobic and menacing - not for those who prefer cosy theatre - but the film will attract film-buffs who want something of the 'neo noir', who are tired of the usual and who want to freshen their film palates.

Great film (a bit of a downer, but good). Perhaps Jared Leto's most significant role. Also, the delivery was quick!
