One of the strangest and frustrating films I have seen in a long time I thought that Pulp Fiction was hard to watch at first jumping from one scene to another but this one definitely is more frustrating Imagine a roller coaster mixed with a murder mystery and you will understand half of what this film is Memento is about a man named Leonard Shelby a guy whose life is shattered when a freak accident resulting in brain injury leaves him with a strange condition The condition is that he has lost all short-term memory He can remember everything previous to the accident but since his mind resets every ten minutes he carries around pictures of whom he knows and where he is going or where he has been Another problem with Leonards life is that he seems to be trying to solve the murder of his wife but when he uncovers something he often forgets Understandably more than a little mistrustful he relies on Polaroids notepad scribbles and cryptic clues hes tattooed all over his body not only to track the killer but to reconstruct his life as well Leonards search for revenge is a chronologically progressive tale of Sammy Jankis the case of an identically afflicted middle-aged man Leonard investigated back in his days as a claims adjuster During Leonards search he runs into a battered woman and a cop Leonard struggles to find out what has been happening in his life but it all comes down to can he remember Its painfully hard to sit through because the film itself resets every ten minutes so we can relate to what is happening in Leonards life Whats interesting about the frustrating elements is that all the pieces when placed together do make sense and that the ending will evidently shock you On top of having to adjust to that element you also have to deal with the story starting with a grisly murder
