Portland Oregonian
A hard and bright and tough film in all the best ways.
90
Enthralling or infuriating.
88
Chicago Tribune
A puzzle movie in which the puzzle is actually worth the time and effort to solve.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Terrifically satisfying film.
80
If nothing else, Memento is a savvy comment on the queasy uncertainties of the postmodern condition, in which history goes no further back than yesterday's news, and knowledge is supplanted by "information" from a tumult of spin-controlled, unreliable narrators.
75
Miami Herald
Fiendishly tricky contraption.
75
Bound to be talked about, debated and eviscerated far more than it's understood.
70
Time
The film takes this attempt to shatter narrative into little pieces about as far into incoherence as it can go; yet it is also full of odd, hypnotic menace.
50
Dallas Observer
Feels mostly like an audacious prank.
40
Once you've seen it all once I bet you'll wish you were watching "Groundhog Day" -- again.
