We’ve got the movie that put Christopher Nolan on the map in this edition of Everything Action Theater with Memento. Guy Pearce stars as Leonard Shelby, who suffers from anterograde amnesia and is unable to store any new memories, so he forgets where he is, what he is doing and who he is with after about five minutes. This makes his already hard mission of tracking down his wife’s killer even harder. The movie is a mind fuck because it starts at the end and then breaks into two different sections, one in black and white that take place before the beginning of the movie and color sequences that take place in reverse chronological order. It makes more sense once you start watching it and you can watch the whole thing below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
