What would you do if you lost your short-term memory? The lead in this film,
Leonard Shelby (played by Guy Pierce), faces this dilemma and fights it with
photographs, copious notes and even tattoos. The result is a fast-paced and
complex puzzle for the audience as we follow Leonard in his quixotic quest to
avenge his wife's murder. Revelation comes for us piece by piece, but will
it ever come for Leonard?
This film received Academy Award nominations for best original screen play and
Post-film discussion led by Dave Singer.
