Updated Details on Memento:LE
We've got some interesting news about the upcoming 2 Disc Memento: Limited Edition (set for release on 5/21). Memento: LE will be a VERY unique DVD centered entirely around the 'mental health' file of Leonard Shelby, where you will need to do some work to even access the special features. Update: we are now told Memento: LE DVD will allow you to watch the DVD in chronological order - but it will be hidden as an Easter Egg on the disc. Get the complete details and more on this unique feature.

Now here's the interesting part of the Memento: Limited Edition DVD. The concept of the DVD is the case file for Leonard Shelby. And when you insert the DVD you WON'T be taken directly to the menu to watch the special features or content. Instead you will need to 'pass' a series of psychological evaluation tests to get access to the features. We're sure that this will be VERY frustrating to some of you and we plan to have a cheat sheet as soon as we get the DVD and make our way through the tests.

Why did Christopher Nolan put in tests before the menus? His philosophy of the DVD experience for Memento: Limited Edition is to immerse you into the puzzling world of Leonard Shelby and to basically mess with your mind, the same way the movie messes with it. The jury is still out weather this will be fun or really frustrating. It's possible that the LE will give us more clues about Sammy Jenkins and the connection between his story and that of Leonard Shelby, if nothing more than continue to expose you to the fractured universe of Memento. Pre-Order Memento: Limited Edition Now.
