Favourite scene?

What's your favourite scene?

This is easy for me, it's the monologue scene with Leonard in bed with Natalie. The dialogue, delivery and score are just perfect. In fact, I'd say it's one of my favourite scenes in a movie ever.

Leonard Shelby: [Running] Okay, what am I doing?
[Sees Dodd also running]
Leonard Shelby: I'm chasing this guy.
[Dodd has a gun, shoots at Leonard]
Leonard Shelby: Nope. He's chasing me.
Definitely the ending.

I know I will never forget the first time I viewed the film and heard the words: "Now, where was I?" followed by the credits rolling up. I sat there with a mixture of confusion and awe, a film has never affected me so deeply as Nolan's Memento, my favourite film of all time, for sure.

Natalie: 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: 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.


<3 that scene. It tears my heart out.

Same here. There is also the "How am I supposed to heal if I can't feel time?" scene which is amazingly powerful. Guy Pearce rocks.

There are so many scenes that are well done in Memento. For me, the one with the most impact was the ending. It has to be the favourite scene for me.

In fact I can't choose one scene as my favourite, because while watching the movie I got shocked in every 5 minutes or what :D It was an amazing idea to make the film that way, you know, that the next scene happened before the last scene and the story is going backwards... that's what makes it an amazing movie. In every scene you feel like you're Leonard, and just like him you have no idea what's happening now. The whole movie is just... mind-blowing :D
