So the other day I was eating breakfast with two of my friends and I mentioned the movie Memento. Both said they hadn’t seen it. I was incredulous. Neither has been in a coma for the past ten years. Both enjoy movies. I told them it was by Chris Nolan. They both knew who he was and started talking about his great Batman movies.
Then I started screaming, “Shut up about Batman! You two are ignorant, and … and … and I hate you! You’re talking about Batman?! Memento goes backwards! You watch the movie backwards! Shut up about Batman and go rent Memento. I hate you so much!”
Okay, I didn’t say all that. But I should have. And if you haven’t seen Memento, well, don’t get me started…
I will warn you, if this matters to you, that it’s R-rated and a bit violent and disturbing.
Now go rent it. (And you’re welcome.)
