This movie was a breakthrough in the career of Nolan. It is about an insurance investigator who suffers from anterograde amnesia. He uses tattoos and noted to slide back into his memories and hunt for the man he thinks killed his wife. The movie goes backwards is all I can say while explaining the movie and watching it intoxicated will only enhance the impact of the film.
Stoner’s favorite filmmaker, Christopher Nolan is back on his seat. Everything was going well and was understandable in this movie until the last half an hour when they start zooming through concepts like gravitational constant, slow passage of time, and singularity.
