would label this “film noire” as one of the most intriguing films I’ve ever seen. Although I’ve seen movies that start from the end and then work backwards, this one was done to perfection. Realistically and naturally prepared, some of the scenes are very funny while others are quite confusing. Guy Pearce plays the part of Leonard Shelby, who suffers from a rare disorder that has taken away his short term memory. Every time he sees something it’s as though it is for the first time. To help keep track of life, Shelby takes pictures and writes little notes to himself. While trying to solve a murder along with Teddy (Joe Pantoliano), we, the audience, read the notes, see the photos, and must sort it all out at the same time. Talk about being paranoid and not knowing who your friends are! You could see this film several times, with several different friends, and each time you will have yet another interpretation of what is going on.
