10 films with non-linear plot (in no particular order)

A Listmania! list by keviny01
 
The Killing
1.  The Killing DVD ~ Sterling Hayden
The list author says:
  "The story of how a robbery is planned, carried out, and botched, is excitingly told in frequent flashbacks and flash forwards, which are necessary because of the many overlapping events in the movie."
$24.99   Used & New from: $0.07
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (179 customer reviews)

Citizen Kane (Two-Disc Special Edition)
2.  Citizen Kane (Two-Disc Special Edition) DVD ~ Orson Welles
The list author says:
  "The greatest innovation of this history-making film is its complete abandoning of a straight narrative.  The events are presented totally out of sequence to show the checkered nature of a man's life."
Used & New from: $4.48
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,134 customer reviews) | 11 customer discussions

Last Year at Marienbad
3.  Last Year at Marienbad DVD ~ Delphine Seyrig
The list author says:
  "This dream-like film blends dream sequences, flashbacks, real and imagined events to create a most unusual narrative, a story about a woman feeling confused about an illicit love affair."
Used & New from: $19.48
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (142 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

The Godfather, Part II [VHS]
4.  The Godfather, Part II [VHS] VHS Al Pacino
The list author says:
  "This epic movie intercuts 2 stories: a young godfather's descent to madness, and his father's rise to power decades before.  The movie ends with another flashback that predates even GODFATHER Part I."
$5.00   Used & New from: $0.02
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (399 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Groundhog Day
5.  Groundhog Day DVD ~ Bill Murray
The list author says:
  "The story is linear, but not to the protagonist, who finds himself living in the same day over and over again.  The movie further manipulates time with editing that emphasizes his comical predicament."
$4.25   Used & New from: $0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (873 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

Run Lola Run
6.  Run Lola Run DVD ~ Franka Potente
The list author says:
  "This movie audaciously tells the same story 3 times and has the protagonist act differently each time.  Cats have 9 lives but certain humans do too!"
$13.49   Used & New from: $0.07
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (608 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Pulp Fiction
7.  Pulp Fiction DVD ~ John Travolta
The list author says:
  "Inter-related stories are told in this movie, with the chronology cleverly shuffled to achieve the greatest impact for the viewer."
$9.49   Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,799 customer reviews) | 20 customer discussions

The Sweet Hereafter
8.  The Sweet Hereafter DVD ~ Ian Holm
The list author says:
  "Through a non-linear story, a trademark of director Atom Egoyan, this film tells a mysterious and dark tale that revolves around a tragic accident."
$24.99   Used & New from: $4.83
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (159 customer reviews)

Rashomon (The Criterion Collection)
9.  Rashomon (The Criterion Collection) DVD ~ Toshirô Mifune
The list author says:
  "This classic Japanese film uses frequent flashbacks to present several conflicting accounts of the same event, showing the mercurial nature of truth."
Used & New from: $9.81
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (214 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Mulholland Dr.
10.  Mulholland Dr. DVD ~ Naomi Watts
The list author says:
  "A ingenious non-linear story that deceptively mixes dreams and reality."
$9.14   Used & New from: $2.34
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,136 customer reviews)
