That's no mean feat, but thanks to the way Nolan establishes such a snappy and gritty tone whilst developing a wildly ambitious and occasionally thematic narrative means it is most definitely the case. But what's even more impressive than Memento's long reach is it's impressive grasp, and that largely lies in the hands of the film's human characterisation and tense energy that capture and engage to deliver a truly immersive experience that somehow keeps you right in the thick of things despite the wild ambition.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: That crazy narrative structure can get confusing at times...
VERDICT: Such a madly ambitious and madly successful film so early in a director's career is rare, but 'Memento' shows Christopher Nolan taking huge risks and delivering brilliance like very few ever manage.

Overall Grade: A+ (10/10)
For the Following, which was Christopher Nolan's first feature film that had a great storytelling and great characters, Momento is the moment of a shining experience for viewing audience.
Momento was and is still today one of the greatest films of the 21st century. Why?, because it broke all of the rules of film making, two, the story is very original that no other director will ever dream of, three this is one of the first movies for the audience to think through out of film to use their brain. Make it this one of the first smartest movies ever put to film.
Momento starts out at the end, the end of the film is the start of the story. For Christopher Nolan using the style it's not cheesy or in anyway use in any power of cinemas history. I have no affair of liking any flashback movies, well except this one because with you very strongly and very wise telling. That's how much I love this film.
I don't want to spoil any moment of this film whatsoever, it is so sad to me that any of my friends or any film fanatics don't even know this very where and very well experience of film that Christopher Nolan brought to the big screens in the year 2000. I just wish everybody can view this in their own experience watch it several hundred times. I like to watch it like almost every other month because it is so eye-popping I need to find something new every time you view it.
I highly tell you to go see this film because it is a thinkable masterpiece!!
Grade: A Perfect 10
