THIS episode is all about nonlinear narratives. Randy came up with this theme, inspired by such movies as "Pulp Fiction" and "Memento."
Joe had us watch "JCVD" starring Jean Claude van Damme as "himself." The narrative jumps back and forth a little bit to heighten suspense and add humor, so it qualifies.
Amy chose The Hours by Michael Cunningham, after Twitter friend @tosyandcosh suggested it. Thanks, Tosy! It intercuts the stories of a different day in the life of three different women at different time periods.
