Thread Structure: Rewriting the Hollywood Formula.
Smith, Evan
Journal of Film and Video, v51 n3-4 p88-96 Fall-Win 1999-2000
Describes a new nonlinear model that has crept into Hollywood's cinematic repertoire in which multiple story threads comprise the story. Examines how this thread structure differs from ensemble stories. Examines differences between traditionally linear films and films with thread structure regarding character roles and viewer orientation, shifts in time and point of view, and Aristotle's linear structure formula.
