    Just rented the DVD of this movie and it is top notch! Starring Guy Pearce and Carrie Ann Moss it is a film about a man who has short term memory loss,caused by an incident when his wife is killed.He goes in search of the killer using notes to remember things and carries a poloriod camera to remember people.There are lots of twists and the movie is told backwards,which can be a little confusing to get used to straight away,but the pay off is worth it.

    It had a small cinema release at the UK box office,and has just opened in the Us.The Retail disc will be available in 3-6 months,before the R1 issue.

    If you like films like Fight Club then i highly recommend this soon to be cult classic!

    Sounds good. Guy Pierce has turned out to be a top quality actor hasn't he? 'ooda thought it when he was in 'Neighbours'?
    Saw 'Rules Of Engagement' a wee while back - didn't realise it was him in it, 'til I watched the extra features.

    I rented this too and thought it was a good unusual film but I dont think I'd buy it - I didnt really think it was anything special on DVD sound wise & picture wise but then I'm stupid like that !!!

    Saw this on a Blockbuster trailer whilst browsing, looked very good.
    However, the R2 bit puts me off every time.
    Is it a worthwhile rent/buy?
    R1 is my prefered choice whenever poss or if www.dvdrumble.co.uk says otherwise.

    Rental only I assume. No sales yet?
    Like I said, I would have preferred R1, but if the disc is good enough, ie, not been messed with etc, then fine.
    I bought Contact R2 as it's actually a superior disc to the R1 version, but it's rare!

    If you want to see it on DVD (anamorphic transfer, DD 5.1 soundtrack) now then r2 is your only choice

    Certainly different.
    I'd give it 6 or 7 out of 10.
    The ending wasn't good enough for me.
    But overall quite a good film.
    As Thx said, seeing it in reverse is a bit odd at first, but it held my attention well.
    I'd say watch it, you may just be suprised!
