When I found out that Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception, Interstellar) made a confusing (really confusing) thriller with Guy Pearce, I had to see it. And when I found out that said thriller was told in every other way but chronologically, I knew I definitely had to see it. And now that I have, I’m still confused.
Memento follows Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce) as he hunts down the killer of his wife with his condition becoming a frustrating obstacle. His condition is that he can’t create new memories yet he can still remember past events from a certain point backwards.
The story is intriguing, yet hard to follow. The general concept itself is already slightly hard to understand, let alone with it being told backwards!
The action is always present and the dialogue is more than serious enough to give Memento a title as one of the greatest modern (this century) thrillers out there.
