I really liked the movie and found it both very interesting as well as moving. Seeing how the conditioned affected lives of the patients was heartbreaking, especially how much Leonard wanted to live like a regular person. The most saddening moment for me was probably the one when he was about to go to sleep but was afraid that when he wakes up, things will go back to how they’ve been befor. It was also very interesting to see the side effects of using L-dopa and how scary they can be. The ending broke my heart too.
