Half-jokingly, at Hypertext 02 I suggested a Hypertext Conference film festival. The movies I had in mind were:
- Sliding Doors
- Run Lola Run
Today, I saw two more that we could add to the list:
- Mulholland, Drive
- Thirteen Conversations About One Thing
All five are fine movies, all help explain hypertext aesthetics, and all are deeply interesting narratives.
Readers have sent in their own nominees. We could have quite a festival!
- Timecode (Eric Scheid)
- Courage Under Fire
- Blind Chance (Liz Klastrup)
- Last Year in Marienbad (Liz Klastrup
- The Saragossa Manuscript (Christian Crumlish)
- Waking Life (Christian Crumlish)
- Possible Worlds (Jamie Blustein)
Hypertext fiction could learn something from these films, too.
Ebert makes a lovely, tangential point about Mulholland. "One of the scenes also contains the funniest example of pure logic in the history of sex scenes."
