The revenge thriller gets an unforgettable new twist with Memento, an intricate crime story about a man with a damaged memory chasing a murderer whose identity he cannot possibly ever know for sure. Directed by newcomer Christopher Nolan, Memento has blown the minds of audiences around the world - by deftly forging a reality in which neither the lead character nor the audience know who is pulling the strings...until every thing that seemed true flips upside down.

Leonard (Guy Pearce) suffers from a rare brain disorder - the inability to form any new memories. He can remember in detail everything that happened before his injury, but anyone he has met or anything he has done since that fateful night, simply vanishes.

Who are his friends? Who are his enemies? What is the truth? In Leonard's world, the answers to these questions shift and change from second to second. And the more he tries to figure out what is true and real, the deeper he sinks into a multi-layered abyss of uncertainty and surprises.

Easter Eggs
After choosing "Otnemem" from the Special features section, go to the top of the screen until the word "questions" in the headline is highlighted by an underline and and exclamation point. Choose it and you will be taken to a note that asks "Who did I kill?" Highlight the right arrow and you will be taken to another screen with a list of names. Choose the victim's name (Teddy) and you will see the credits for the DVD.

Also, in the "Biographies" section under Special Features, for a brief moment in the actors' bios it says their characters name instead of their real name, while in Nolan's bio it says Memento backwards.

There is also something in the Tattoo gallery. When you reach the tattoo for John G's license plate, select the picture and then press the up button and you will see a picture of the license plate. Pressing the up button on some of the other pictures for the other tattoos will give you different angles for those tattoos as well.

Watch The Movie all the way through and let it go back to the main menu. From there, all Menus are backwards and in reverse.
