Editing and plot based on a gimmick but I believe it worked out exactly as Nolan planned it. Nolan explored the plot twist in his earlier work and shows here he mastered the craft. The only sad thing about movies like Memento that they don't offer a lot of "re-watch value".
Una película con mucha fotografía en tonos suaves , muchos elementos azules y unos cambios drásticos en blanco y negro como si pudieras ver una voz en off en vez de solo escucharla lo cual crea atmósferas visuales y no de más sentidos , como la misma película las trabaja, también observamos muchos movimietos de cámara dichos de la acción como travelling , paneos y algunos pocos al hombro.
Memento is a compelling study of self-delusion and it's intricately structured by Chris Nolan. It's not a perfect film. The mechanics of Leonard's disease have been oversimplified and it takes the easy path by pre-establishing Leonard's "eternal" love for his wife. But you have to applaud Nolan's ambition. At its heart Memento (like Rashomon) is about humans' inability to be honest with themselves about themselves.
Mind-shatering. Truly ruthless fragmentation of your short term memory. An extreme execution of a narrative method. It works. Dividing itself, until or there is left is the impression. no image. Just a memory of a force aplied on your skin, still lingering, like an invisible, temporary bracelet. Just the memory of having remembered.
By existentialist philosophy, the tragedies that befall people have little to do with whether they are good or bad. In fiction, these tragedies are largely rendered hollow and meaningless. Characters give meaning to events by triggering them through action. Tragedy has to be about terrible events occurring as consequences for fatal flaws. Otherwise they are hollow and meaningless.
