Memento: Chris Nolan
« on: November 10, 2010, 08:41:07 am »
It's conceptually as near SF as any mystery/fantasy/f=horror film I've seen to deserve inclusion.

My good pal and I watched this film after a gig and the usual travel, beers, late night food that goes with being a musician.

Both of us despite being exhausted were absolutely glued to the screen. At certain points I felt utterly stunned by Nolan's intelligence, skill, direction - well in fact everything. In my unjustifiable arrogance, I rarely accept that someone else's brain is the size of a planet compared to my own but I give up with Nolan. While I love other films I can't say I've ever seen anything so absorbing and original in my life. The guy is just a genius

Interesting you say it stayed in your mind for a long time afterward. Exactly my experience. I believe this was mainly to its originality in both execution and conception. The idea sort of attacks the brain.
