C8 THE OTTAWA CITIZEN ARTS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2001 In Memento, you know what happens next, but not before the first place. Some of these notes are tattooed on his body. To give us an idea of how Leonard must think, writer-director Christopher Nolan tells the film backwards: it begins with a killing and each succeeding scene goes back in time until we see how it all started. It's not a whodunnit as much as a whydunnit, although by the end, when we still aren't sure what's going on, we suspect it's simply a philosophical conundrum, a contemplation of memory and time in which we are studying the human condition as clues in a thriller. It would be a great movie if it made sense. As it is, it's a spiral staircase that falls upwards into confusion with great rewarding friendships than this one. Although I do get to tell the same jokes.") The real pleasures of the movie come in seeing how Nolan accounts for all the contingencies of this world of reverse time and lost history. It's a film where we always know what happens next, but never what happened before. The King is Dancing -k', AA One of those big lavish French films with large emotions, gilded set design, exquisite music and stiff drama. It's based on a true story in the court of Louis XTV, the Sun King, and his relationship with Jean-Baptiste Lully, the Italian-born court composer and a world-class sycophant. The king likes Lully because bis music makes the king want to dance: Louis fancied himself a bit of a hoofer, and the movie showcases the engaging dancing styles of the era. Their relationship bothers the anti-Italian faction of courtiers, but the film is further layered with an omnisexuali-ty Lully steals another man's wife but also appears to be attracted to His Majesty and political infighting that . includes the up-and-down career of Moliere, who was briefly Lully's writing partner. It's all supposed to add up to some kind of grand opera, like Amadeus, but The King is Dancing has to settle for being visually fascinating: lovely, musical and very slow. Jay Stone New on Video Memento k-k-k', AA Backwards runs that film the. Memento is a film noir that is based on a clever conceit and structured for maximum interest (and maximum confusion). It stars Guy Pearce as Leonard, a man who suffers short-term memory loss. He's investigating the apparent murder of his wife, but since he can't remember what happened yesterday, he has to make notes to himself about who he has interviewed, who he can trust and what, in fact, he is doing in Guy Pearce and Carrie Anne Moss in Memento. style, and it even comes with a measure of humour (Joe Pantoliano, as one of Leonard's friends, says, "I've had more Jeepers Creepers tops the box office LOS ANGELES Movie-goers turned their peepers on Jeepers Creepers, a horror flick that topped the box office with a record debut for a film opening over Labour Day weekend. The tale of a sister and brother preyed upon by a bestial killer, Jeepers Creepers took in $15.8 million U.S. during the four-day weekend, according to studio estimates yesterday. That topped the previous debut record of $9.8 million for The Crow: City of Angels in 1996. Rush Hour 2 finished second over the long weekend, pulling in an estimated $n.2 million. Typically a quiet weekend for theatres, Labour Day is not known for big film debuts. The weekend often is dominated by holdover films in the No. 1 spot such as last year's Bring It On or The Sixth Sense in 1999. The Sixth Sense, which was in its fifth week of release, still holds the overall record gross for Labour Day weekend with $29.3 million. O, an update of Shakespeare's Othello that was the weekend's other new film, debuted with $6.9 million. Set in a Southern boarding school, O stars Mekhi Phifer, Josh Hartnett and Julia Stiles.
