Christopher Nolan on Memento.

With Antonia Quirke

As cinemas across the world are pinning their box-office hopes on Christopher Nolan's Tenet this summer, Antonia looks again at the director's breakthrough hit Memento, and travels back to the year 2000 when Nolan talked to Radio 4 for the first time.
