Memento Explained — Theories There are many different theories within the Memento community that range from the asinine to the epiphanic that attempt to answer many of these questions. This is one of the most challenging films of at least the last decade, bracing in both its architecture and the implications of its purposefully ambiguous plot. Without the preceding scene, the audience is in the exact same situation as Leonard, not knowing where he is or what is going on. Now, I'm not saying all of this can't be found in the original viewing—it's very easy to find, really. You can see how this line of thought leads me to conclude Natalie is important in someway.

Memento Plot Summary

memento chronological

He was able to fill in answers to clues that referred to pre-1953 knowledge. I want to know how Jimmy could possibly know Lenny in the context that he does: a bit ticked off and also a bit relieved. In this way, Lenny can collect the insurance money while looking like a hero. Now compare that to the scene with Leonard and Burt with the hotel room switch up; Leonard knew all about the telltale signs and expressions people make when lying, sort of like how Sammy knew how picking up something electrified would hurt him. And yet at the same time the sheer potential there for this type of mental exercise speaks volumes about how intricately designed Memento is. Take a basic film noir story, toss in a brain injury as an excuse, shake vigorously until the extremely mundane storyline is unrecognizable to anyone and voila you have an Oscar nominee. He then climbs on top of his wife's body and starts strangling her himself.

And I think he enjoys this new life. Tons of cool ideas and interesting insights. A tale told by an idiot signifying nothing. You make up your own truth, like your police file. Due to the challenging nature of the story, Memento did not have an easy time finding distribution.

Instead of that, we only have theories that can all be deconstructed. Ever since then, Sammy has been acting strange and cannot make short term memory. In the end the audience discovers that Leonards life was Sammy Jankins'. You think I don't know my own wife? More on this though below More than likely, I subscribe to the view Lenny did kill his wife with the insulin. But he alters this memory after 11. He makes every single element of the film a clue to the larger picture. I really think that we can nail the bottom end of the truth, and would gladly share more of my personal views on the topic if it would bring people back into the discussion of Analyzing Memento once more.

That is about the all the few little hints that have crossed my mind regarding the matter and I thought I would lay them out on the table for future reference. The central tattoos that matter to the film really are just the 1-6 evidence tattoos and whether you believe those to be lies just depends on your thoughts on where Lenny learned about John G. Teddy also tells him where Jimmy Grant John G. Thus his mental institution admittance as opposed to a medical facility. Throughout, the film features visual hints -- some so brief as to verge on the subliminal -- that call everything else in the film into question. And the rest for another reason. Lenny injecting his wife scene is real.

So he remembers just fine. Another but less plausible reason is that Jimmy somehow was involved with Lenny and his wife in some way. Lenny really does have a memory problem. The color sequences are shown reverse-chronologically. It's an interpretation, not a record. I would like too know your thoughts about it and about my 2 question. I would rather consider that everything that Lenny remembers is actually just a created memory that Teddy has put into his mind.

B 1:30:10 He goes into the tattoo shop and makes the tattoo of the licence number. Teddy uses Lenny to kill people for money or drugs. Lenny is supposed to to have his old memories and should be unable to create new ones, so Sammy is real. His mind tricked him to keep him alive, to save him. Meanwhile, every single Tattoo that is done in his scribbly handwriting contains information given to him through an anonymous phone caller supposedly Teddy, perhaps a 2nd person as well! We see him decide to kill Teddy less than halfway through the movie, and the rest of the picture is watching a character with only half of the information that we have.
