Re: Easily, my favourite film of all time

The word "confusing" gets used on thsi forum quite a bit to discuss Memento , but I really don't think it's an accurate word.

Re: Plot-hole or Misunderstanding?

:thumbup:

The movie is pretty dense (in a good way), but when you unpack it, I think you find most of the answers are right in there, and it's totally solid.

Re: the way i understood memento

"He trained himself..." is exactly my point.
