P.S. This review is written in reverse.

Leonard displays a picture of a car

It’s unforgettable. All those reasons are why Memento is a must watch. I shouldn’t give away the ending, let’s just say it’s brilliant. It’s one of those movies that’s a different experience the second time you watch it. You’ll be totally surprised the first time you watch. The reason, I believe, it was filmed in reverse was to make you as confused as Leonard is. His goal is to track down the man who killed his wife and caused his amnesia. He uses polaroid pictures and tattooed messages in order to help him remember. Which means he’s unable to make new memories. Leonard has anterograde amnesia. With shots in between showing the main character Leonard making a phone call. Entire scenes last for about 5 minutes and then the next scene explains what happened before that. Instead, the movie starts at the end and works its way to the beginning. Not exactly. Are characters going to walk backwards and speak backwards? I thought how could a movie be done in reverse. When my mom first told me about Memento, I was a little confused. Or at least Christopher Nolan’s best film until The Dark Knight and Inception. Memento is arguably Christopher Nolan’s best film.
