Today I watched a film that I have wanted to see for some time which was Memento, Memento revolves around a vengeful guy trying to hunt and kill the person responsible for raping and murdering his wife the only problem is he has short-term memory loss and can't make new memories. Memento is directed by Christopher Nolan and stars Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss and Joe Pantoliano.

There are a few positives to this film, which include: great acting, great story, good story progression, it is super complex, really intriguing and has a really good ending. To expand, I thought Guy Pearce was sensational in this film and really carries it as he is one of very few characters; the story of the film is very good and builds lots of intrigue (if you can get your head around it). The reason this film is complex is because of the way it is told as the film is shown in reverse, revealing other unexpected plot points. The only negative that I can think of is that I wasn't attached to the characters but that takes a lot for me.

Overall I absolutely loved this film and it was basically like watching Primer but with better acting, so taking everything into consideration I rate this film:
