Memento Screenwriting Podcast

Part of Memento’s charm lies in its ambiguity. Leonard Shelby is an unreliable protagonist and the supporting characters ultimately prove themselves to be untrustworthy. It seemed the deeper I dug in, the more I ran into dead ends. And I guess that’s when it clicked: The fractured narrative is no gimmick because it fits the content and theme. As an audience member, I found myself just as confused and disoriented as the protagonist. This is a film that cinema buffs, unlike Mr. Shelby, will remember for a long time.

Dan and I had the pleasure of discussing this film with screenwriter Christine Conradt. She provided some insightful commentary in what I believe is one of our best discussions yet. You can learn more about Christine by visiting her website, ChristineConradt.com.
