This DVD had been sitting on my To Watch stack for ten years before I finally watched it. I tried when I first got it but yanked it out after five minutes. Should have had more patience. After ten minutes I thought I had it all figured out, but I was wrong. Ebert was right on the money: "Diabolical and absorbing."
It's really interesting to watch this again after Nolan's "Inception." He's fascinated to see how far characters go to build defenses against their own pain, suffering, and guilt. Memento creates a new genre of "loopy-noir." There are blissfully absurd humorous moments. Just a great, mysterious ride with a twist that racks your brain just enough.
