A landmark film from acclaimed director Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight, The Prestige, Batman Begins, Insomnia), Memento is a mind-bending thriller whose mesmerizing power grows with every viewing. Guy Pearce stars as Leonard, a man with a bizarre disorder: the inability to form new memories. Ever since that fateful night when his wife was murdered, anyone Leonard has met, or anything he has done, simply vanishes from his mind. Who are his friends? Who are his enemies? What is the truth? The answers change from second to second as Leonard seeks vengeance for his wife’s murder…and sinks into an abyss of uncertainty and danger.

I think one aspect that draws so many positive reviews to this film is that it is not structured in the orthodox manner of filmmaking. The viewer must deconstruct each scene from the following scene in the previous segment of time. The newness of this structure makes one think, perhaps even somewhat mathematically. It is revolutionary and worked as, I presume, a first time method but I think it would become tiresome if done again, at least, to anyone who has experienced it in Memento even if they liked it. I liked the film but I won’t be saving it to watch again. I think it will lose its magnetism the second time around.
I was reminded of putting all the scenes on the board and then mixing them up but with two plans of order at the same time.
