Memento Unboxing

Many years before celebrated filmmaker Christopher Nolan unleashed films like Interstellar, Tenet, The Dark Knight Trilogy and the recent masterpiece Oppenheimer, his films were much smaller – but just as impactful. His second film, Memento, remains one of his finest – and this new Blu-ray release from 101 Films is an utterly gorgeous masterclass in how physical media should be done. A gorgeous steelbook, two booklets, a bonus disc in a separate sleeve, and a little envelope of replicas of polaroids and notes from the film all within a rigid slipcase – fair play. Doesn’t get much better than this.

Leonard (Guy Pearce) suffers from a rare brain disorder — the inability to form any new memories. Title 031 on the 101 Films Black Label, this limited-edition SteelBook® release features brand new interviews with director Christopher Nolan, executive producer Aaron Ryder, producer Emma Thomas, screenwriter (and author of the original inspiration for the film) Jonathan Nolan, actor Carrie-Anne Moss, and frequent collaborator composer David Julyan, as well as a new commentary with film critics James Mottram and Sean Hogan. The package contains two booklets, one with Jonathan Nolan’s Memento Mori short story, and the other a brand-new essay: Remembrance of Things Past: Time and Memory in Christopher Nolan’s Memento by James Mottram. The disc is packaged in a rigid box with beautiful new artwork along with prop replicas of the Ferdy’s beer mat, polaroid photographs and Leonard’s notes enclosed in Leonard’s folder.

MEMENTO is available now on Limited Edition Blu-ray from 101 Films
