Sorry if there's already a thread for this. I thought it would be nice to have a thread about movies, seeing as I see quite a few threads made for single movies.
Anyways, I only wanted to use this as an opportunity to talk about Memento. It's a neo-noir psychological thriller about an insurance investigator who got anterograde amnesia (short-term memory loss) after getting hit in the head when his wife was raped and murdered during the night. It's very interesting to see how it can affect his life, especially since he wants to kill his wife's murderer. He makes tattoos on his body, takes photos and writes notes on them to remember what he wants to do and facts about the man he's looking for. As if it wasn't enough, there are two separate storylines that cross each other at the end, or the beginning of the movie. By that I mean that one of the storylines begins at the end and shows Lenner's memories gradually, from the end to the beginning which will create links with what you saw before.
It's actually very hard for me to explain something like that, so you can simply click here and read Wikipedia's article on it.
Memento got a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and was judged as one of the best examples on the impact of short-term memory loss.
