Watch: 24-Minute 'Anatomy Of A Scene' Documentary On The Making Of Christopher Nolan's 'Memento'

20 November 2014 1:47 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

These days, Christopher Nolan is known for his big-budget, tentpole spectacles. “The Dark Knight” trilogy. “Inception.” "Interstellar.” But we can’t forget the director’s much smaller, more indie pedigree. While Nolan’s first film, “Following” didn’t do much business at all, it put him on the map, and he seized the opportunity with “Memento." Told “backwards,” the film stars Guy Pearce as Leonard, a man with no short-term memory on a quest to find his wife’s murderer. To keep track of the clues he unearths, he tattoos vital information on his body. The film bucked convention, jumping chronologically, alternating black and white with color, and depicting many scenes in reverse, so that audiences saw the end first, and then watched events unfold that led there. If you're a fan of the film, this Sundance Channel "Anatomy Of A Scene" documentary on the making of the movie is worth a watch. »
