Memento

Recommended Posts

Non-linear narrative. Complete short term memory loss (retrograde amnesia). When in black and white  - chronological order. When in color - reverse chronological. They meet at the end.

Can someone explain Memento to me?

It's good the first time through. On a second viewing you notice all the plot holes.

I first got this movie as part of a ps4 deal I found on Craigslist a long time ago.  Loved it then kept watching it over and over and yea not what I thought

Yeah I get the basic (not caring about spoilers for a nearly 20 year old movie) he decided to forget and trick himself into killing his dirty cop buddy, but yeah lots of things missing.

Why/how did he get with Natalie in the first place?  Is his wife really dead? Is Sammy real or not?

He got with Natalie because he found a coaster in Jimmy’s jacket that said to meet her at the bar.

I also know this: Chris and Jonathan Nolan disagree about whether Leonard actually slept with Natalie.

How does he remember he has short term memory loss? I don't know if the Remember Sammy Jenkis thing is enough. But if that is a plot hole the whole movie falls apart, and it is a really fun movie, so I am not gonna harp on it.
