MEMENTO – Movie Endings Explained (2000) Christopher Nolan

Movie endings, they’re usually pretty straight forward right? Everything pays off, the main characters learn something, and our heroes ride off into the sunset. Sometimes though, we don’t get the typical ending from a movie, we get something much more nuanced, complex and open ended. The kind of endings that leave things up in the air for all of us to debate and theorize on until we’re blue in the face. With Movie Endings Explained, we aim to delve into some of the more ambiguous and mysterious endings to films that have left audiences scratching their heads for years, and to attempt to explain them. In most cases, a definitive answer isn’t really there, so we definitely want to hear from YOU on how you interpret the various endings we’ll be discussing with this series.

This time we’re looking at yet another Christopher Nolan film, his 2000 psychological thriller MEMENTO. Told in two different timelines that intercut and intersect throughout the entire movie (one in color, the other in black and white) Nolan really plays with the fluidity of memory and non-linear storytelling. The color scenes run in reverse chronological order, while the black and white scenes move forward in sequence until the two pieces coalesce near the end. The central device of MEMENTO is memory, as Guy Pearce’s lead character Leonard has anterograde amnesia, which means he is no longer able to create new memories, following an intensely traumatic experience. We look at some of the clues that may point to some kind of answer to MEMENTO, but ultimately discuss possibilities more than anything, as this film is somewhat like a puzzle that may never be truly solved.

    There is nothing more vexing than an open ended movie. Sometimes, you just want to know what the bloody ending was supposed to be in the directors mind

    Teddy is not sympathizing with Lenny, he was looking for the opportunity to steal the car to get the money in the trunk. He trapped by his foolishness and seems to forgot that he is dealing with a brain damaged person who doesn’t remember and believe any thing and only rely on his notes.

    The whole movie was shit. Just watching this to see if it has any new theory’s. When everything in the movie could be a lie or hallucination why even bother. There is no truth. None that you can trust anyways.

    The fact "I'VE DONE IT" isn't written backwards (for him to see in a mirror), is a clear giveaway that it's just a daydream, not a flashback.

    this movie kinda comes off to me as an allegory for being hung up on a past, failed, relationship……… only all of the emotions and reactions are massively enhanced into actual plot threads and action due to the guy's obsession. i mean a guy who literally tattoos the memories of better times, and a pointilized annotation of the details of how it all went wrong, and what he ought to do to fix it after it was dead and buried? which is all skewed by his very biased take on things where he doesn't pay attention for very long? c'mon. this is a movie about 'paradise lost' and a guy who blew it. that's why all the "answers" are so ambiguous. 🙂

    one of my all time favorite movies. Ironically this film is a key to remembering a certain time in my life. I first saw this RIGHT before September 11. I was obsessed with this film and it's score. I was watching it almost daily and then woke up Tuesday morning to the horrible events of that morning. The score for MEMENTO became a score for my life and the horrible reality of that time.

    Nice analysis, but i think the movie is pretty much about self deception and the lengths people go to avoid confronting the fact that they are the villains. Leonard decided to kill teddy because he made him realize that he's long killed his wife's killer. Realizing that he'd no longer have a purpose, he decides to get rid of the only witness (teddy) that would be his reality check and go on hunting for the killer forever.

    For those who want to find out a little bit about what happens after Lenny kills Teddy, this is from the movie's official website, which is still active.

    This movie is shit. They should keep the story simple for audience. After all, we watch movie for entertainment.

    Something doesn't add up. Let's say his wife survived the "accident" and Lenard really killed her with insulin doses(because of his condition)… how did he come up with(and remember) the story about Sam(who is actually Lenard himself AFTER the accident), when it happened AFTER the accident, in which he lost his memory. So his fake story is based on a true story that happened after he lost his memory…but then how does he remember it without notes?

    Did he kill his wife by asphyxiation or by giving multiple insulin shots?

    Please help me answer my this question:
    Lenny wrote on his chest that John G was rape and murder his wife, from who he knew the name of John G for the first time?

    Nope. "Sammy didn't have a system." Leonard did. He wasn't a serial killer, which is why he had to kill Teddy.

    It's Jenkis, not Jenkins. That really annoyed me for some reason. Can't even get a character name correct, but expect to be able to explain the ending?

    Guys, and gals. Lenny never left the institution. These are stores he conjures up in his mind. Teddy is somehow always there wherever Teddy is. Shows out of nowhere or at convenient times e.g. when Lenny leaves the bartender's house. People we are stuck in the narrator's mind. He is trying to confuse us. This is HIS reality meaning not real.

    I think this movie might have been better with Christian Bale and Michael Caine
