Memory Loss

Leo (Channing Tatum) and Paige (Rachel McAdams), in many ways, have the ideal life. They are hopelessly in love, happily married, and living in an urban, pseudo-bohemian hipster paradise. She’s an artist, and he runs his own recording studio. One romantically snowy night, the two share a moment in a parked car…an ill-advised decision. A truck plows into them and sends Paige into a coma. When she awakes, she finds her anxiety-riddled husband sitting at her bedside. The trouble is that she can’t remember that they are married or even who he is at all. She is suffering from a severe form of retrograde amnesia in which she can only remember events up the point shortly before she moved to the big city and met Leo. Suddenly her parents, with whom she hadn’t spoken during the course of her relationship with Leo, show up, insisting to take her back home. Leo hopes against hope that his wife will regain her memory of him, their love, and their life together before it all disappears for good.

Why Watch? Because all week long we’ll be featuring short films featuring the gang from Community. Today’s features Donald Glover sucking on the male sex organ. User discretion is advised. This short works so damned well, especially for movie fans, because it’s a parody of Memento that takes things in a completely absurd direction. It imagines a world where Leonard Shelby is black (just like Spider-Man), and his roommate takes advantage of his short term memory loss by making him play a mouth-based video game. It’s been online a while and already been seen a bajillion times, but that’s no reason not to give it the spotlight once again. What Will It Cost? Just 3 minutes of your time. Check out Memory Loss for yourself:
