10 years of Flick Filosopher: ?movie a review to how

It was a totally obvious approach, but of course I had to review Memento backwards. Looking back, though, I’m not sure if it’s completely clear that that’s what I was doing. The last paragraph of my review (which would have been the first, if the paragraphs were ordered “normally”):

How do you tell a story backward? The question that had been obsessing me from the moment I heard about Memento, the suspense film by written and directed by Christopher Nolan (based on a short story by his brother Jonathan) that has been the darling of festival audiences in recent months. The idea was intriguing, but would it work?
