Movie Madness is an event pitting 64 films against each other in a knockout tournament style where only one will triumph (to find out more, click here). This round... The Godfather vs Memento. Who will progress to the next round? You decide.
The Godfather (1972)
One of the most famous movies of all-time, Francis Ford Coppola's epic gangster film tracks the Corleone film over the course of a decade. With so many parts immortalised by homages, tributes and parodies, the chances are that even if you haven't seen it there is much that will feel familiar to you.
The film that put Christopher Nolan on the map is a brilliantly woven mystery that manages to keep it's audience in the dark as long as it's central character and plays havoc with traditional narrative. Guy Pearce's central character has anterograde amnesia, meaning he is unable to form new memories, and the film mirrors this by having his storyline play in reverse chronological order, so that the audience is as unaware of what came before as the lead character. A perfectly executed experiment in film narrative.
