Multimodal narrative construction in Christopher Nolan’s Memento a description of analytic method

Abstract

In this article, the authors propose a systematic method for analysing film that bridges the gap between analyses of narrative concerns, on the one hand, and the analysis of fine-grained technical details, on the other. They illustrate the approach on the basis of an analysis of Memento, a film particularly noted for its unusual narrative structure and show how their method maintains a tighter linkage with the filmic material presented while at the same time drawing out narratively significant generalizations.
