Long before Inception
or The Dark Knight
, 2000's twisty Memento
hinted at the cinematic mind games to come from writer-director Christopher Nolan
. Guy Pearce stars as Leonard Shelby, a man with anterograde amnesia who is unable to form new memories. He's committed a murder, but is it for the reasons that the character played by Carrie-Anne Moss suggests? Put on your thinking cap as Nolan presents two different timelines—one chronological and one in reverse—simultaneously that converge at the very end in this complex psychological thriller that keeps you guessing.
Memento has been available on Blu-ray for years, but fans will want to check out the updated 10th anniversary edition on February 22. One new extra is a recent featurette with Nolan discussing the film's legacy, plus the director's script, audio commentary with Nolan, the original short story, the "Anatomy of a Scene" featurette and other extras that were left off the original BD.
