The famous 2000 film that put Christopher Nolan on the map tells the story of a man on the hunt for the man he thinks killed his wife.

The subject of amnesia was great by himself and the idea of doing a non-chronological movie could have failed, but with this subject it worked so perfectly. It's true that it's not very stunning visually, but the movie's budget was something like 5 million, so I don't think I can criticize this. The acting was tremendous (especially Guy Pearce who should AT LEAST be nominated for an Academy Award). There are some funny moments too, especially when natalie waits only 2 minutes in her car and come back in her house saying that Dodd beat her: probably my fave scene of the movie.
But when I first saw the movie, I was saying to myself: we know Teddy's the killer, what could possibly be the punch at the end of the story, I never saw this coming! All the Teddy exposition to Leonard was incredible (I believe that Teddy said the truth BTW) and the fact that he decided to end all this with the decision of killing Teddy.
When I first saw it, I had the chronological option on my DVD, so I immediately watch it chronologically!
An incredible movie, probably my favorite of all time
