Due to a violent attack, Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce) suffers from a rare disorder which means that he can no longer form new memories. Christopher Nolan’s neo-noir psychological thriller unfolds in reverse chronological order, following Leonard’s attempt to track down his attacker and his wife’s killer using photographs and a complex system of notes. Memento urges us to consider the crucial role of memory in determining our identity and provides valuable insight into the nature of the self.

Screening on 35mm.

The film will be preceded by a short introduction and followed by an accessible and informal post-screening talk by James Mooney, lecturer in film and philosophy and Director for Access and Outreach at the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Open Learning.

A young Christopher Nolan directs a compelling, tense, delicious time-bomb of a thriller. With a cast including Guy Pearce and Carrie-Anne Moss, this is a timely treat.
