How is suspense created in the film Memento?
Suspense is created in the opening scene of Memento by the use of a technique that reverses the film. Suspense is created because you don't yet know why the film is in reverse. It was an interesting way to start the film and it created the right atmosphere for a Psychological Thriller.
Suspense was also created with the flashbacks. Each flashback held the answer or showed a vital clue to the story. The flashbacks created suspense because they kept going back to crucial points in the story, though at the time you're not sure why they are so important.
