Crash

Alissa Quart once said that hyperlink movies “play with time and characters’ personal history, plot twists, interwoven storylines between multiple characters, jumping between the beginning and the end” (Quart). Before Valentines Day or New Years Eve the first hyperlink movie that caught my attention was the movie Crash. Crash was co-written and directed by Paul Haggis in 2004. This movie shows how every decision you make affects multiple people.

After we read the two poems, Penetration and Dispossession I realized that this idea that you can choose from multiple options is a very useful tactic to keep an audience excited. If you are procrastinator and need a break from studying I highly recommend this movie! The Youtube link below is the trailer.

    This connection with film is an interesting application of the hypertext concept, since movies typically aren’t literally interactive. Do you have a link for the Quart quotation?
