Memento

This twisted crime thriller is the most original, invigorating bit of cinema to come along since The Usual Suspects. Australian actor Guy Pierce (L.A. Confidential) plays an insurance investigator hunting down the man who raped and murdered his wife. The only problem is, our hero suffers from a serious short-term memory loss and can only retain new information for a few minutes at a time. As a result, he must rely on a series of clues tattooed to his body. Just to make things more complicated, the entire film starts at the end and goes backwards--so, like our protagonist, we have no idea what came before. Carrie-Anne Moss and Joe Pantoliano (both of The Matrix) co-star. Deliciously paranoid and brilliantly constructed, this is the first must-not-miss film treat of the year. 113 minutes
