Australia Diary 18 March 2002

Watched Memento tonight (watch the trailer). What a great film. It's about a guy with short term memory loss (that's worse than mine!). He can't remember anything for longer than a couple of minutes with out it fading away... The last memory that stays with him in his head is of his wife being raped and murdered. So he's desperate to track down and kill the person that did this to her - and ruined his life. He gets around his debilitating problem by taking pictures, making notes and having tatoos that detail important things that to remind himself things. The story is told in short snippets, jumbled up in time that you then piece together slowly whilst watching. I really enjoyed it, although with my memory the way it is, it was a bit close to home at times!

Take at look at another review.


To tomorrow
