I was first introduced to the genius of writer and director Christopher Nolan through his 2000 film Memento. A man suffering from anterograde amnesia who must take Polaroids of everything just to get by. An unsolved murder. And two timelines, one playing chronologically while the other presents backwards, eventually meeting in the middle at the end of the movie…what’s not to like?
(If you have never seen this movie, schedule some time off this weekend to watch it — because this movie is like Nolan’s better-known Inception in that you need to be giving it your full attention to fully enjoy it!)
Memento still remains one of my favorite psychological thrillers, so when I came across this visual map of the movie’s sequence of events I knew that I had to share it here with my readers. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
