The Cinematologists Podcast Episode 30: Memento (Christopher Nolan, 2000)

2430001_z_memek16cauFor the last two years my colleague at Falmouth University’s School of Film & Television Dr Neil Fox and Brighton University Principal Lecturer Dr Dario Llinares have been hosting a fortnightly podcast, with all of the episodes collated here http://www.cinematologists.com. Regularly in the iTunes Top 20 for Cinema, I’ve chipped in a few times. For this screening, a couple of weeks after Fresher’s Week, Neil opened up a list of films for our students to choose from – they chose Christopher Nolan’s Memento. I’d not seen the film since its release, and was blown away by what stands up as a complex modern noir. Click the link below to listen:
