Memento makes Blu-ray debut to mark 10th anniversary


Preview by Jack Foley

A GROUND-breaking, mind-bending and intriguing thriller from Academy Award® nominee Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight), the critically acclaimed Memento features compelling performances from Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss and Joe Pantoliano.

Now with stunning high-definition picture and sound, this unforgettable story of one man’s tireless pursuit for revenge arrives on Blu-ray for the first time on October 4, 2010 from Pathé Productions Ltd, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the film’s original release.

Leonard Shelby (Pearce; L.A. Confidential) remembers everything up to the night his wife was brutally raped and murdered.

However, since that tragedy, he has suffered from short-term memory loss and cannot recall any event, the places he has visited or anyone he has met just minutes before.

Determined to find out why his wife was killed, the only way he can store evidence is on scraps of paper, by taking Polaroid photos and tattooing vital clues on his body.

Wrap your mind around an entirely unique kind of storytelling, as the film’s events unfold in a non-linear way in two separate, alternating narratives.

Full of exciting twists and turns, yet intelligent and darkly humorous, Memento received numerous accolades upon its original release, including Academy Award® nominations for Best Original Screenplay and Best Editing.

The Blu-ray is packed with special features including interviews with Christopher Nolan and Guy Pearce, the original Memento Mori short story narrated by writer Jonathan Nolan, Anatomy of a Scene featurette, and a Shooting Script to Film
2 Comparison.

One of the most memorable films of all time, re-visit Memento 10 years on in high-definition Blu-ray from October 4, 2010.
