Memento ()

directed by
featuring Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss, Joe Pantoliano, Stephen Tobolowsky

A man is determined to find justice after the loss of a loved one, even though he is incapable of fully remembering the crime, in this offbeat thriller. Leonard (Guy Pearce) is a man who is struggling to put his life back together after the brutal rape and murder of his wife. But Leonard's problems are different from those of most people in his situation; he was beaten severely by the same man who killed his wife. The most significant manifestation of Leonard's injuries is that his short-term memory has been destroyed; he is incapable of retaining any new information, and must resort to copious note-taking and Polaroid photographs in order to keep track of what happens to him over the course of a day (he's even tattooed himself with a few crucial bits of information he can't get along without). Leonard retains awareness that his wife was brutally murdered, however, and he's convinced that the culprit still walks the streets. Leonard is obsessed with the notion of taking revenge against the man who has ruined his life, and he sets out to find him, getting help from Natalie (Carrie-Anne Moss), who appears to be a sympathetic barmaid, and Teddy (Joe Pantoliano), who claims to be Leonard's friend, even though Leonard senses that he cannot be trusted. Writer/director Christopher Nolan adapted Memento from a short story by his brother Jonathan Nolan. Mark Deming, Rovi Hide synopsis

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.

MEMENTO

by CRDC on May 6, 2010

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