Jonathan Nolan’s short story “Memento Mori” formed the basis for his brother Christopher Nolan’s MEMENTO--a film that came out prior the story it was adapted from! Learn how that came to pass and more in this discussion of some of the early work of the iconic Nolan Brothers. The film stars Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Joe Pantoliano.
Topics include: the neo-noir influence on the film, structure meets story, how memory informs identity, deliberately confusing an audience, what’s the truth about Sammy Jankis, the meaning behind some hidden frames, and why we need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are.
