It's quite amazing how this film, based on a short story by director Nolan's brother, has turned into such a blockbuster hit. The film feels low budget as its a purely character driven movie and its all filmed on 4 or 5 locations; a motel room, a girl's house, a bar, an abandoned house.

So if you are even slightly interested in checking out this film, go check out because you will not regret it. This is a spectacular film that can be watched, analyzed, rew... read more

"Memory can change the shape of a room; it can change the color of a car. And memories can be distorted. They're just an interpretation, they're not a record, and they're irrelevant if you have the facts."

Christopher Nolan's 1998 feature-film debut Following failed to earn much worldwide recognition for the director, but his follow-up project Memento certainly managed to compensate... read more

Best Quotes from the Movies (47 movies items)

""I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can't remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world's still there. Do I believe the world's still there? Is it still out there?... Yeah. We all need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are." - Leonard Shelby"

" The non-linear narrative is especially effective in this psychological thriller, as it reflects the way Leonard sees the world and gives the audience insight into his plight. Although primarily used as a narrative tool, scientists have praised Memento and its construction as the most realistic portrayal of anterograde amnesia and the nature of memory in general. "

"Re-Watched 02/02/2017 Rating 8.5/10 Format: Blu Ray Its been years since i last watched this movie so long that i didnt remember anything about it other than its plot. Being one of Christopher Nolan's earliest work its crazy to see just how good it still is for sure top 3 of his. I personally hate that this is getting a remake because its already soo freaking damn good. "
