From Wikipedia: Hyperlink cinema is a term coined by author Alissa Quart, who used the term in her review of the film Happy Endings (2005) for the film journal Film Comment in 2005. Noted film critic Roger Ebert popularized the term when reviewing the film Syriana (2005). These films are not hypermedia and do not have actual hyperlinks, but are multilinear in a more metaphorical sense. Quart suggests that director Robert Altman created the structure for the genre and demonstrated its usefulness for combining interlocking stories in his films Nashville (1975) and Short Cuts (1993). She also considers the television series "24" (2001) and Alan Rudolph's film Welcome to L.A. (1976) as early prototypes. Crash is an example of the genre, as are The Player (1992), Traffic (2000), Cidade de Deus (2002), Nine Lives (2005), The Opposite of Sex (1998), Magnolia (1999), Timecode (2000), Amores perros (2000), Thirteen Conversations About One Thing (2001), 21 Grams (2003), Cape of Good Hope (2004), Babel (2006), Rendition (2007), Auf der anderen Seite (2007), The Air I Breathe (2008), Third Person (2013), The Words (2012), and the TV show "Lost" (2004), also "Touch" (2012).
