Product description


The protagonist of "Memento", Leonard Shelby (played by Guy Pearce), is on a mission to find the man who murdered his wife. But Leonard suffers from a rare form of amnesia, so that in order to keep track of his life he must surround himself with written reminders, some etched on his own flesh. This guide steers the reader through the mysteries of Christopher Nolan's movie, the movie's making and its many possible meanings. James Mottram here offers a full guide to the film's complexities and answers some of the innumerable questions it provokes.
