ArcLight Presents...MEMENTO

Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce) is on the pursuit of vengeance: tracking and punishing the man who raped and murdered his wife. The difficultyof locating his wife's killer is compounded by the fact that Leonard suffers from memory loss. Although he can recall details of life before his "accident", Leonard can't remember what happened fifteen minutes ago. Haunted by what he's lost, he's re-built his life out of index cards, photographs, file folders, charts, tattoos and obsessive habits that stand in for memory, fixing him in space and time and connecting him to his mission. "Memento" mines this psychological terrain, using non-linear film narrative to mirror Leonard's own effort to interpret the random pieces of evidence he hoards.
