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.

Easily, my favourite film of all time

Memento uses the narrative to get you in the head of someone with no memory and Primer does this with time travel.


Mulholland Dr. is so darn great. It's wickedly horrifying. But I think Memento is far more superior.

I agree 100% :) but it deserves to be mentioned alongside Memento with Fight Club, The Usual Suspects, Requiem for a Dream, Brick and Oldboy etc

I've been asked by many people why I hate FIGHT CLUB. So it's not new to me :mrgreen:
Don't get me wrong. I really love Fincher. And I perceive Fight Club as a good film. But watching it is just an aching cinematic experience for me.
It was the chaos and the so radical and revolutionary insights on consumerism that really hurts me. And I do think the ending is very pretentious.
Durden is made out of an existential question. Yet he died out of nothing. Where's the insight? the resolution of a film is very integral yet it was overlooked. The whole film had a lot of philosophical narration yet upon arriving in the end, it didn't justify why Durden must die. It was more acceptable if Edward Norton just accepted his identity as Durden


Nevertheless, it was a good film. Perhaps "hate" is a strong word. But I definitely, didn't like it.

Fair enough hoppity-kick :) I can see why you didn't like it if you think of it that way but I loved it all the way though.
