Memento Review: It’s not until a film like Memento comes along, or that you personally have to deal with someone close who suffers a form of this subject to hand, that you get jolted to remember just how your memory is such a prized and treasured thing – and crucially that it’s one of your key safety devices. Christopher and Jonathan Nolan crafted one of the best films of 2000 based on those facets of the human condition. Their protagonist is Leonard Shelby, played with stupendous believability by Guy Pearce, who is suffering from a memory amnesia caused by a trauma to the head as he tried to aide his wife who was raped and murdered.
Memento’s other main stars include corrupt cop ‘Teddy’ (Joe Pantoliano). A friend said of Pantoliano’s performance in Memento, ‘he was perfect for the role of ‘Teddy’, as he comes across as the mysterious bad guy’. There is also the character of Natalie (Carrie-Anne Moss) who is a lot like Teddy in her own way. What is similar about these characters is the way they use Leonard’s condition to advantage their own situations.
Acting is solid across the board, as is the writing, directing, etc., but special kudos must be extended to the very talented editor Dody Dorn, who successfully managed to put all of these fragments together and help them flow in a smooth, healthy manner that is not easy to pull off. One of the most “memorable” (sorry, couldn’t help slipping in the bad joke) films you’re likely to ever see, “Memento” is an instant classic due to its groundbreaking narrative style and impressive dramatic undertones. For those jaded moviegoers who seek something to keep them awake, interested, and constantly thinking, there couldn’t be a better choice than this film.
