Analyzing a scene from Memento

Analyze a short sequence from the film (5 minutes maximum). Discuss, in detail, how the formal elements of the film (mise-en-scene, cinematography, editing, and sound) further the film’s story, themes, and overall tone. Be advised that this is an essay, not a bullet-point list of shots. Your essay should demonstrate a strong understanding of how the formal elements of film operate. The essay should reflect a careful reading of the film supported by independent analysis. Remember, you are making an argument with your answering of the question. Use first 5 minutes from Memento (Christopher Nolan, 2001) Somehow reflect the materials.
