Opinion

From Library Staff

And if you need a break from reading about memory, here's a mind-bending movie that explores amnesia.

Leonard Shelby is searching for the man who raped and murdered his wife. But his memory is completely unreliable. Structurally original.

Fabulous movie...I have to borrow it at least 2 more times and maybe then I will be able to understand it better. It certainly makes you think. Christopher Nolan is brilliant!!

Wonderful intelligent movie

A highly forgettable film.

Yes it's a story about revenge...but it really is a story about a man being used over and over again because of his brain injury.

Once in a while a film comes along that proves a low budget independent movie can still be made in America. This movie is a wonderful story that is told so well thru the acting and the great direction of Christopher Nolan.

A psychological thriller that could only come from Christopher Nolan. The man has a knack for quality, cerebral cinema. Pearce delivers a great performance here, as well.

(paraphrasing) "No, no, it's not amnesia. It's different. I remember everything up 'til the incident. I know all I knew before. I know all about myself. I just...can't remember anything new. Everything new I learn...fades. If we talk for too long, I'll forget how we started & next time I see you, I won't remember this conversation. I won't even know if we've met before."

Natalie (of Leonard's wife): "Tell me about her again." Leonard Shelby: "...Why?" Natalie: "Because you like to remember her." Leonard Shelby: "She was beautiful... To me she was perfect." Natalie: "No. Don't just recite the words. Close your eyes... and *remember* her." Leonard Shelby (closes eyes): "...You can just feel the details... The bits and pieces you never bothered to put into words... And you can feel these extreme moments... even if you don't want to... You put these together and you get the feel of a person... Enough to know how much you miss them... and how much you hate the person who took them away..."

"I know what that's going to sound like when I knock on it. I know what that's going to feel like when I pick it up. See? Certainties. It's the kind of memory that you take for granted."

I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning… even if I can’t remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world’s still here.
