I actually couldn't make it through this movie. It was pretty obvious when it started what was up with the main character, he had short-term memory loss so he always left himself little notes. Being a Christopher Nolan film, the time splicing and scenes coming together were just too confusing for me. Not only was it confusing, but it was fairly boring too. I liked Nolan's other films (for the most part) and was excited to watch another one. But I think that since this movie is fairly old (2000) that the lack of special effects we see today just didn't help me like this movie at all.
Only sometimes do I like movies where I don't know what's going on. And quite honestly, it's not very often. It's not relaxing at all. Which is what I want to do when I watch movies.
Basically, the film is about a man whose trying to find the murderer of his wife. But since he has that memory problem, it's becoming more and more difficult for him. I think the thing I hated most about the film was that for the majority of the time he talked to himself. He second guessed himself every step of the way and couldn't trust anyone, therefore leaving the audience in a stupor.
I'm going to give this movie a "hated it" I just didn't enjoy it at all and I wouldn't watch it again... at least the parts I could actual muster my way through. Sorry if you love this. (1/5)
