"MeMeNTo"...

Seen this movie when it was first released back in 2000 & really enjoyed. Thought it was well written, Christopher Nolan (writer & director) did a good job. Anyway, I watched it again the other day & thought it would be something to share with y`all. For those that aren`t familiar with the movie I`ll give you a lil` run~down of the plot. "Memento" is the story of Leonard (played by Guy Pearce) a former insurance investigator that has this condition with his short~term memory -- he can not make new memories; he knows who he is but if you talk to him for too long he`ll forget how the convo` started or even who he was talking with. He`s trying to solve the apparent murder of his wife using notes from a personal file, Polaroid pictures & tattoos on his body, given his condition he can`t always trust the notes so he has the main facts tatt`D. Along the way he meets up with two different people; Natalie (played by Carrie-Anne Moss) & Teddy Gammell (played by Joe Pantoliano), both are quick to help Leonard but also take advantage of him & his condition for their own gain. The movie will have you watching closely trying to piece the story together yourself & by the end you`ll see that British writer Christopher Nolan ran the entire story backwardS for a lil` twist, so check it out...
