    For those of you who dug "Memento" (and who didn't?) you might want to check out director Christopher Nolan's first film "Following," out Dec 11.
    It has some of the features that people were hoping for on the Region 1 edition of "Memento" such as chronological re-arrangement option, and oh yeah, audio commentary by director. (But before you get upset about the R2 version, remember that Canadians got the really raw deal with the bare-bones Alliance Atlantis version).
    Definitely a clever little film, and a clear indication of promise fulfilled by the second film. Have a look at my review.

    Is Following a 1.33:1 OAR film??? I saw at the theater and seem to remember it being some flavor of widescreen, but I can't trust my memory.
    (The theater in question -- the MOMA, with the director present, would have shown it in 1.33:1 if that was indeed the AR).
    The IMDB is mute on this question -- does anyone have the real scoop?

    I just watched the Memento DVD this weekend. There is an IFC interview with the director, Chris Nolan, in the supplements. In the interview he talks about Following and says it was shot in "Academy" and therefore looks great on a regular TV. I took this to mean it is 4:3.

    Just finished watching this flick. Quite enjoyable. [​IMG] Nolan is definitely is not one to be hampered by chronological order, but I am happy to see CTHE released this film with the revised chronology feature we all hoped would be on the original release of Memento.
