Leonard Shelby wakes in a new place each day, not knowing how he got there or where he's going...the last thing he can clearly remember is the night his wife was brutally raped and murdered. Leonard's obsessive hunt for her killer forms the basis of MEMENTO.
Suffering acute short-term memory loss from an injury sustained by his wife's killer, Leonard (Guy Pearce, Two Brothers, LA Confidential) is incapable of storing new memories for more than 15 minutes. Using Polaroid photos of people and places as triggers, and by tattooing important clues on his body, Leonard must try to piece together the jigsaw puzzle that remains of his life and unravel the deep mysteries that surround him.
Throughout his daily struggle, Leonard must also try and determine if the enigmatic bar tender Natalie (Carrie-Anne Moss, The Matrix Trilogy) who offers to help him can truly be trusted, and whether the unnerving police officer Teddy (Joe Pantoliano, Daredevil, The Sopranos) is really a friend. Who can Leonard trust? And how will he remember those he can?
With an abundance of never before seen DVD special features, MEMENTO 3 DISC SPECIAL EDITION is an utterly original mix of intricacy and flashback montages. Writer and director Christopher Nolan (Insomnia) has masterfully intertwined a complex yet enthralling story, revealed in an ingenious reverse narrative, to ensure that along with some exclusive extras, the MEMENTO 3 DISC SPECIAL EDITION will be remembered as the definitive edition of this cult classic and one of the most important DVD releases of the year.
The original release of MEMENTO won many awards including the "Best Foreign Independent Film in English" Award at the British Independent Film Awards and the prestigious screenwriting prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
