Memento, 2000

Do you know what amazing is? watch this movie

Memory can change the shape of a room; it can change the color of a car. And memories can be distorted. They’re just an interpretation, they’re not a record, and they’re irrelevant if you have the facts. That the best word that Leonard (Guy Pierce) said in this movie.

The movie is about a man, Leonard, tried to find the killer of his wife. He has short memories lost disorder (Anterograde Amnesia). So in order to remember event has happend he got himself tattoo to remember the event and get photograph and notes. In his investigation he was helped by a friend name Teddy (Joe Pantoliano) who then has connection to his wife murder and also helped by a bar waitress, Natalie (Carrie Anne Moss) who used him for her own benefit.

This movie is told in two color, Black and white color is represented the chronological progress forward and the full color is represented the backward event. This movie is really excellent. The plot, the story and the way director, Christopher Nolan direct this movie so obviously tried to tease our brain with the dialogue and the plot. Christopher Nolan is also succeed to end this movie with the unbelievable twist ending. The actor, Guy Pierce, maybe it’s not his best performance, but it’s still okay. Maybe he express too much confuse in this movie. I think you don’t have to be confuse all the time to show people how big is your brain damage. If you curious what really happened to him and his wife murder event, you have to watch this movie and you only find out who killed his wife by watching this movie 😀

Carrie Ann Moss (See her in Matrix Trilogy) played Natalie who is selfish but compassion to Leonard’s lost and also beautiful. Joe Pantoliano (see him in The Fugitive and US Marshall) tried to make Teddy is a convinced man and as much as realistic he could be.

Overall, I admired this movie’s genuine idea. We don’t see the genuine stuff lately. For me, It’s a quite brilliant idea and crazy enough to be released. But, Thanks God, it happened, Because this movie made almost two hour of my life is wonderful and happy by watching this movie. Thanks for Christopher Nolan too for this remarkable movie he made.

This is definitely must watch movie or you will never know what amazing is hahaha
