Complex in its simplicity, Memento is one of the most tense, intriguing, and involving thrillers ever made. The film features an amazing screenplay bolstered by some fantastic editing choices. A masterpiece from genius Christopher Nolan. One of my all-time favorite films, and one of the best films of the 2000s.

As manipulative as the film's script is at times, the payoff is great. The result is an intriguing, sometimes confusing, but always engrossing thriller that keeps you guessing until the end. The gritty cinematography and weary performance by Guy Pearce adds to the film's urgent feel. This is what put Christopher Nolan on the map and it remains a neo-noir classic.

A jaw-dropping Hitchcockian-like thriller-mystery

Easily the most complicated movie I've ever seen, with its outstanding structure, acting, direction and overall story, Memento is a modern mystery classic, with a slight trail of neo-noir.

Leonard Shelby is from San Francisco. He has a motel room. He has a car. He has a murdered wife. What he doesn't have is his memory. And still, armed with basically next to nothing, he sets out to find his wife's killer.
Christopher Nolan made the right choice choosing Guy Pearce to embody Leonard Shelby, because he is a perfect fit. I can see he is tormented, confused, determined and vengeful, visualizing some of the most well-developed and directed characters put to screen.
I actually feel kind of sorry for Guy Pearce, he's a great actor. He started off excellently in the late nineties with L.A. ...

A crackerjack neo-Nair retrograded approach

Memento is a psychological thriller that does not begin and end, but ends and then shows how it began. Christopher Nolan adapted the basic plot from his brother Jonathan’s short novel Memento mori. Although there were many changes in the feature film, the basic idea is from the novel. Christopher Nolan is already known for the Following in 1998, where he adapted a technique in showing elements in reverse chronological order and even though he did not get much attention with that, memento will make him recognize himself. This movie stands as his own and it will define him. The various elements in the movie like plot, narration and action set ups are all having some uniqueness in terms of demonstrating. I will say that action scenes are not really engaging enough to set the seats high in te...

Unforgettable Effort By Chris Nolan

I have to confess to this great affinity for films that are considered ‘off-beat’; ‘Fargo’ (1996) is a personal favorite. In addition to that gem, the Coen brothers have provided us with other great titles in this genre, such as ‘Raising Arizona’ (1987), ‘The Big Lebowski’ (1998), and ‘No Country For Old Men’ (2007). There are a few other directors who’ve worked in this category; Quentin Tarantino, whose directorial credits include ‘Reservoir Dogs’ (1992) and ‘Pulp Fiction’ (1994), immediately comes to mind. Other films of this type seem to have been one-shot entries for directors such as John Herzfeld, who offered us ‘Two Days In The Valley’ (1996). Director Chris Nolan made his initial foray into the genre with his first full-length feature film ‘Following’ (1998). He followed that up ...
