Memento is one of those films that positively blew me away when I first saw it. Even though it was years ago and I’ve forgotten all the details by now, this sticks in my mind as an excellent movie. It’s one that I’ve been meaning to see again, but for some reason I always end up forgetting about it. That’s why I think it’s time to buy the DVD so I can finally remember what all the fuss was about.
The Memento Limited Edition DVD looks like my best bet. From what I’ve read, it comes with a special “Easter egg” for viewers: the option to view the film in chronological order. If you remember, director Christopher Nolan opted to tell the story backwards, which really made the action difficult to follow. I think it would be great to be able to watch things unfold chronologically and see if the order of the storytelling makes any difference on the overall impact of the film. I’m guessing things will be more understandable in chronological order, but the original backwards version will pack more of a punch.
Anyway, the Memento Limited Edition DVD is currently on sale at Buy.com for just $9.99, which is half off the regular price. That’s a price I don’t mind paying for a movie I already know is great — and free shipping just makes my decision easier. Can’t wait to get this one!
