Memento (2000)

Thriller Rated R

Although more than a mind game, Memento certainly will throw you for a loop as it follows a man with short-term memory loss (Guy Pearce) who is trying to solve the murder of his wife. As the topper, the story is told backward, so that the first scene we see is actually the last one in chronological terms. The result is a masterful mindblower; for almost two hours, Memento has you questioning just about everything you think you know.
