Christopher Nolan’s Memento premiered nearly 15 years ago during the 2001 Sundance Film Festival, introducing us to Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce), a man driven by the relentless desire to revenge his wife’s brutal murder while a rare, untreatable form of memory loss hinders his path.  Using this motif, Nolan developed an elaborate and masterful nonlinear unspooling of clues that challenge the viewers’ expectations.  The audience knows only what Leonard can piece together from various photographs, charts, notes, and tattoos, which serve as his memory. 

If you haven’t seen Memento, check it out on Netflix, or better yet, see it in April as part of this year’s ‘From the Collection’ screenings at Sundance London.

I don’t even know how long she’s been gone. It’s like I’ve woken up in bed and she’s not here because she’s gone to the bathroom or something. But somehow, I know she’s never gonna come back to bed. If I could just reach over and touch her side of the bed, I would know that it was cold, but I can’t. I know I can’t have her back… but I don’t want to wake up in the morning, thinking she’s still here. I lie here not knowing how long I’ve been alone. So how - how can I heal? How am I supposed to heal if I can’t feel time? (x)

Number 1 rule of doing a Memento piece is that you always have to do it in BW version. What’s awesome about this movie is that it’s played in two sequences: a colored one which is told in reverse and BW which is played chronologically.
