I am wondering if someone knows what makes a nonlinear film interesting narrative talking or how do you tell an engaging story without starting at A and finishing at Z,in a linear film its easier as you have a clear plot and marked characters, but in a nonlinear there must be different ways to engage the audience
I wonder if anyone knows that. But it does work.
Maybe a good way to find that out is by watching some experimental films right here on Garage. Or some of the experienced Mubians can make some recommendations — people write a lot of lists here on many different topics, some are quite unique. I’m thinking that this film: The Color of Pomegranates might be a good example of a filmmaker taking liberties with how he tells a story. It’s been influential for some experimental filmmakers. Perhaps you could read an analysis of it and that will lead you to similar films…
Here are some Mubi discussions/lists/etc to start: Color1Lists
i know the use of voice is very important for example in pulp fiction but there must be more ways for sure
