Some memories are best forgotten.
Suffering short-term memory loss after a head injury, Leonard Shelby embarks on a grim quest to find the lowlife who murdered his wife in this gritty, complex thriller that packs more knots than a hangman's noose. To carry out his plan, Shelby snaps Polaroids of people and places, jotting down contextual notes on the backs of photos to aid in his search and jog his memory. He even tattoos his own body in a desperate bid to remember.

Confusing puzzle. Some part in black and white which has a meaning. The plot order and mystery are insane. Over complication doesn't mean it's a great movie for that reason but it also happens to be a great movie apart from that. Needs a few views and that doesn't bother me.

You need to and will want to watch it twice. I still love this movie. It was quite unique when it came out.

No spoiler here however this movie is mediocre I could barely make it through 30 minutes without making a funny commentary the movie is extremely slow moving and for being a thriller it's deathly not very thrilling

Oh and the continuity in this movie is pretty flawed you do not inject insulin intravenously you have to put that in the belly into the paratonial cavity injection into the veins is fatal usually and apparently in this movie it's not nice job on the realism guys
