What this film has proven about Christopher Nolan:

1. Christopher Nolan is undoubtedly one hell of a director, and is one of the best out there right now. I can only imagine how much the budget for this film was, but one thing's for sure: B-movie it ain't.

2. Christopher Nolan is a gifted storyteller. I haven't read the short story "Memento Mori", where this film's screenplay was based, but I can pretty much tell that both Chris and his brother Jonathan have storytelling in their blood.

3. Christopher Nolan is a master of non-linear narratives. I can't even explain it, since it's too complex to put into words.

Memento is like a sort of whodunit, except here you already know whodunit. You just want to know how it actually happens. And all this is done in reverse. It takes a writer with great skill to do that.

Guy Pearce is effective as the goldfish hero, while Carrie-Anne Moss and Joe Pantoliano remind me of The Matrix.

And let me just end by saying that Joe Pantoliano is one really talented actor.
