Watch 24-min Making of Doc on Christopher Nolan's MEMENTO
Christopher Nolan's second film, Memento, is a hard movie to describe and sound sane. The events in Memento are shown backwards and forwards at the same time (sounds insane, right?). The Sundance Channel did a making of documentary called "Anatomy Of A Scene." It's 24 minutes long, and if you haven't seen the movie, stop and don't watch this video. It's jam-packed with spoilers.
Memento has a methodically created structure and narrative. The film is the best example of the Nolan brothers' writing skills and Christopher's editing prowess. With all the big budget films that Christopher Nolan has been creating over the last decade or so, I wonder if he can still tell a smaller story.
