Memento is a right of passage movie – the kind of movie 19 year olds watch and decide, “holy hell, cinema is cool.” Call it the most cinematic mainstream film or the most mainstream serious film of the last 20 years, Memento also marks the beginning of the reign of Christopher Nolan. A deep and gripping meditation on forgetting helmed by a technical virtuoso, Memento is a puzzling emotional trip.

The story of Leonard mixes constantly with Sammy history, a old client that suffers from the same condition. The movie runs backwards but have a really impressive organization and logical thinking. The end it’s not what you were waiting for, leaving the viewer desperately trying to pick up all the facts and coming to logical outcome. The story itself it’s not the most important part of the movie, but the way the director narrate it that is memorable.
