Film Title: Memento

Leonard (Guy Pearce) is a man determined to find justice after the brutal rape and
murder of his wife, even though he is incapable of fully remembering the crime. But he
himself was beaten severely by the same man who killed his wife and his short-term
memory has been destroyed; he is incapable of retaining any new information, and must
resort to copious note-taking and Polaroid photographs in order to keep track of what
happens to him over the course of a day. He’s even gone so far as to tattoo himself with
a few crucial bits of information he can’t get along without. Convinced that the culprit
still walks the streets, Leonard is obsessed with the notion of taking revenge against the
man who has ruined his life, and sets out to find him, getting help from Natalie, who
appears to be a sympathetic barmaid, and Teddy, who claims to be Leonard’s friend, even
though Leonard senses that he cannot be trusted.
There’s no chance of falling asleep during this film, as one story line moves forward in
time, while the other tells the story backwards revealing more each time.
