'Memento' Film critic Kenneth Turan reviews Memento, the latest work by independent film-maker Christopher Nolan. The plot revolves around a man who has no short-term memory, and who's trying to avenge his wife's murder. In order to remember what he learns about the murder he writes countless lists, and even goes so far as to tattoo key information on his body. So far, the movie has won critical acclaim and a screen-writing award from the Sundance Film Festival.
