In just five days, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will reveal whether Christopher Nolan’s Inception has been named Best Picture of the year. (Spoiler alert: In all likelihood, it ain’t gonna happen.) But regardless of that outcome, Nolan fans have reason to rejoice today: Lions Gate has just released a special 10th anniversary edition of Memento, Nolan’s twisty breakthrough film, on Blu-ray. It includes a featurette about the making of the movie, audio commentary from Nolan himself, and “Memento Mori,” the short story on which the movie’s based.
In case you needed a refresher: Memento follows Leonard Shelby, a man with short-term memory loss and a torso covered in bitchin’ tattoos, as he hunts for the criminal who murdered his wife. But because this is a Christopher Nolan flick, it’s much more complicated than it sounds… to the point where you might not understand the film’s ending the first time you watch it.
Thankfully, we have a solution for this problem: Enter our giveaway, and you could be the proud recipient of one of 20 copies of the 10th anniversary special edition of Memento on Blu-Ray. Then you can watch and re-watch until the damn thing starts making sense. The discs are courtesy of Lions Gate and available while supplies last.
