Dir: Christopher Nolan, 2000 (9.1*)
Indy Spirit Award, Best Picture
Director Nolan (Following, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) has created one of the most challenging crime mysteries in cinema as the hero has suffered short-term memory loss from brain injuries and we experience the story in reverse chronological order. Guy Pearce has his strongest performance as a man who takes polaroids of each person in his life and also tattoes important facts on his body as he searches for the perpetrators. This is a tough movie to describe, cuz every time I see it I forget it. Winner of 5 Indy Spirit awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay.

Note: If you've seen the film first, the Limited Edition of the film has an egg on Disk 2 that allows you to view the film forward chronologically.
1) Insert Disc 2, then select the clock.
2) Select "c" 5 times for the questions that come up.
3) Select the pictures of the woman changing a tire in this order: 3,4,1,2

About This Blog

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
