Sir Rhosis, he probably knew before he got the bump on the noggin that burning Polaroids was the only way to be sure you’d destroyed them. Not a continuity error, I’d say.
Rucksinator, I saw the movie on Saturday night at a local college, not on a DVD. But the article to which I linked in the OP has some good suggestions on seeing the movie on DVD in the correct chronological order.
DMark, I think you need some tattoos. Yesterday.
Mosier, my own theory is that his wife is dead because Leonard botched her insulin injections, and he muddled that with the Jenkis story in his mind. She survived the earlier rape (remember we saw her blink behind the plastic sheet/shower curtain). Sammy Jenkis either was or was not a liar (Leonard said no, but Teddy said he was; I don’t think we have enough info to know for sure). Leonard had a false memory of being in bed with his late wife; remember that that area of his chest was still untattooed in his “present.”
Prelude, yes, I think Leonard was talking to Teddy on his motel room phone (although by that point, I’d think Teddy was sick to death of Lenny’s circular monologues).
Hal, heh, good one!
