Memento Suffering short-term memory loss after a head injury, Leonard Shelby embarks on a grim quest to find out who murdered his wife. Shelby snaps Polaroids of people and places, jotting down contextual notes on the backs of photos to aid in his search.
Memento: the movie that made Chris Nolan famous. A truly original thriller as it is told backwards and through the eyes of a hero with no memory. In other hands it could have been a gimmick but with Nolan's deft handling it really works.
