10 Movies Without a Traditional Timeline You Must See

8º – Memento (Christopher Nolan, 2000)A man with problems in his short-term memory begins an incessant search for the identity of his wife’s killer. The film has a reverse chronological line, telling the story backwards, working with the subjective sense of life and the diversity of the human substance in the world.


7º – Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, 1941)The plot of the film exposes fragments of the life of a big name of the local press, working with its pleasures and displeasures, as well as its exacerbated form to govern his day to day. Biggest movie in Orson Welles’ career, ‘Citizen Kane’ uses a lot of flashbacks to conduct his plot and bring substance to the central character’s acts.


6º – Rashomon (Akira Kurosawa, 1950)Held in a weird game of deception about what would or might not have happened in a strange murder, the film rules its plot by unraveling the various accounts of the witnesses present at the scene on the day of the crime. ‘Rashomon’ adheres to a chronological line that varies between past and present, always giving life to the various reports of the characters. One of the best films of Akira Kurosawa’s career.


5º – The Handmaiden (Chan-wook Park, 2016)A young woman is hired to be the maid of an heiress to a prominent family of the place, discovering, little by little, that the motivations for her hiring were more obscure than she had imagined. ‘The Handmaiden’ is divided into chapters, playing with the spectator to each outdated fragment, always working to deconstruct previous paths. An impeccable film from the prolific South Korean cinema that evolves every year.
