Wheee, thank you! This post did need some lovin'... to remind me that I ought to be looking at it more often and trying to accomplish something. Whoops.

My brain is already fried, so perhaps it will have a reverse effect? Ya never know. I'm not very good at thinking, but I will give it a try ;) I need to get rollin' with my movie watching so thank you for the recommendation!

I guess it's one of those movies you can't really review because you're afraid to give clues away! You just have to watch it and then you may discuss! don't read the wiki, because they give the whole story away.

but i guess the main concept is actually quite simple. after witnessing the murder his wife, he become afflicted with acute short term memory condition (He can't form new memories) He became obsessed to kill the man who murdered his wife. now, the confusing part is this film is told in reverse-chronology. We may know how the story ends but it would make much more sense if we know how the story starts - which is the end of the film. Basically you have to be glued on your seat because if you miss one scene, you will not know what is going on.

Here you'll find: running, cycling, triathlons, climbing, hiking, exploring, horseback riding, dogs, my own photography and ramblings, and whatever else life decides to throw my way. As of last summer I've completed a sprint triathlon and a half marathon. I used to compete in show jumping and eventing and miss my horses more than anything!
