Cinemakers: Christopher Nolan #036 – Memento (2000)
Just two short years after the promising (but somewhat underwhelming) Following, Christopher Nolan released Memento, a masterpiece of a film and possibly the best movie he’s ever made. Toying with narrative structure in the way he did in Following — but with far more panache — Memento is a wild ride through the mind of a man with no short-term memory who constantly finds himself unsure who he can trust. Who do you believe when you’re surrounded by people who are more than willing to use you, and when you can’t even remember the last conversation you had? “Can I just forget what you told me? Can I just forget what you made me do?” Join us as we dive deep into the psyche of Leonard and tattoo ourselves in an effort to remember where we’ve come from and where we should go next.
