  2. 2.     Leonard Shelby is a man searching for his wife’s killer He is also stricken with severe anterograde amnesia Everything before his wife’s death he remembers, but he has no ability to hold memories after the event He has tattooed himself and has written reminders all over the place of what he should be doing and what he should be looking for . He takes many pictures.
  3. 3.   He wakes up many times with no recollection of how he got there, as if he was black-out drunk the night prior He has many people that he knows, but he doesn’t know if he can trust them
  4. 4.    The story is told from the point of view of the main character – it is a very disorienting point of view The film may go off on tangents and suddenly end and start on a new one, with little to no continuity This is close to how a person with severe anterograde amnesia sees the world
  5. 5.  Anterograde amnesia:    Inability to create new memories after the event that caused the amnesia It is an ill-understood ailment, but it is popularly believed that the hippocampus is the most afflicted part of the brain, due to its role in memory creation Can be caused by drugs, a traumatic brain injury, or even a severe emotional shock
  6. 6.   This film is heralded by the scientific establishment as one of the most true-to-life depictions of anterograde amnesia in any motion picture Clinical neuropsychologist Sallie Baxendale: ”[…]the film documents the difficulties faced by Leonard, who develops a severe anterograde amnesia after an attack in which his wife is killed. Unlike in most films in this genre, this amnesic character retains his identity, has little retrograde amnesia, and shows several of the severe everyday memory difficulties associated with the disorder. The fragmented, almost mosaic quality to the sequence of scenes in the film also reflects the 'perpetual present' nature of the syndrome.”
