More requested than any other movie in LSC history, LSC attempted to show this not once, not twice, but three semesters in a row before being beaten by its distributor, the champion of phone tag...but now, at long last, we've booked it so you can finally see the 17th greatest movie of all time* in 26-100!

Leonard (Guy Pearce) suffers from short-term memory loss. Notes and tattoos are his only connection to the past as he searches for his wife's murderer. Meanwhile, barmaid Natalie (Carrie-Ann Moss) and a guy named Teddy (Joe Pantoliano) offer to help him in his quest - but each claims the other is an enemy. The story is presented backwards and in pieces, just as Leonard experiences it.

"mesmerizing mind-bender - a mind fuck as well as a new classic among thrillers"
      -- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. Read this review.

"Memento doesn't just draw you into a dramatic mystery, it makes you aware of human mystery. And that's food for thought and entertainment."
      -- Desson Howe, Washington Post. Read this review.
