narrative trickery

memento employs a narrative trick the likes of which pretty much guaranteed i would like the film, even if it weren't well-acted and filmed. but it is also both of those, so it is a very fine film indeed.

one casting choice that kept drawing me out of the movie was jorja fox as leonard's wife. every time i saw her, i thought “hey, it's that chick from csi (and er)!” i guess part of the problem there was that her role was basically limited to being in dialogue-free flashbacks.
