FromInceptiontoThe Lake House, moviegoers are increasingly flocking to narratologically complex puzzle films. These puzzle movies borrow techniques-like fragmented spatio-temporal reality, time loops, unstable characters with split identities or unreliable narrators-more commonly attributed to art cinema and independent films. The essays inHollywood Puzzle Filmsexamine the appropriation of puzzle film techniques by contemporary Hollywood dramas and blockbusters through questions of narrative, time, and altered realities. Analyzing movies likeSource Code,The Butterfly Effect,Donnie Darko,Déjà Vu, and adaptations of Philip K. Dick, contributors explore the implications of Hollywood's new movie mind games.
