The film opens to eight men eating breakfast at a diner. They were perfect strangers, assembled to pull off the perfect crime. Then their simple robbery explodes into a bloody ambush and the ruthless killers realize one of them is a police informant. But which one? Featuring Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, Steve Buscemi, Chris Penn, Lawrence Tierney, Tim Roth, Tarantino, and criminal-turned-author Edward Bunker as members of a botched diamond heist, the film depicts the events before and after the heist. It incorporates many themes that have become Tarantino's hallmarks: violent crime, pop culture references, profanity, and nonlinear storytelling.
The revenge thriller gets an unforgettable new twist with Memento, an intricate, reality-tweaking crime drama about a man with a damaged memory chasing a murderer whose identity he cannot possibly ever know for sure. Directed by Birtish - born filmmaker Christopher Nolan, Memento has already blown the minds of audience at film festivals around the world—by deftly forging a reality in which neither the lead character nor the audience knows who is pulling the strings... until everything that seemed true flips upside down.
Father Richard is desperately trying to sell his motivational success program... with no success. Meanwhile, “pro-honesty” mom Sheryl lends support to her eccentric family, including her depressed brother, fresh out of the hospital after being jilted by his lover. Then there are the younger Hoovers - the seven-year-old, would-be beauty queen Olive and Dwayne, a Nietzsche-reading teen who has taken a vow of silence. Topping off the family is the foul-mouthed grandfather, whose outrageous behavior recently got him evicted from his retirement home. When Olive is invited to compete in the “Little Miss Sunshine” pageant in far-off California, the family piles into their rusted-out VW bus to rally behind her - with riotously funny results.
