When I got the script for Memento, I read it and I got killed off on page one and I fired my agent.
— Joe Pantoliano

A man's liberal and conservative phases seem to follow each other in a succession of waves from the time he is born. Children are radicals. Youths are conservatives, with a dash of criminal negligence. Men in their prime are liberals (as long as their digestion keeps pace with their intellect). The middle aged run to shelter: they insure their life, draft a will, accumulate mementos and occasional tables, and hope for security. And then comes old age, which repeats childhood -- a time full of humors and sadness, but often full of courage and even prophecy.
E.B. (Elwyn Brooks) White memento quote

I do like to keep mementos from my work, whether they be photos, the backs of make-up chairs or even props and clothes.
— Adam Garcia

All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.
— Susan Sontag

I just saw Memento. It's very, very good. I watch a lot of French films.
