So I recently saw two movies I thought were really good.
Vantage Point was very well done, I thought. It’s about a terrorist plot to assassinate the president, told from the point of view of all the main characters (including the terrorists). So it’s like the same 23 minutes over and over and with the parts and different questions answered and mysteries solved as it goes along and new POVs are seen. I saw that about two days ago.
Today I saw the CGI film Hoodwinked which is about the story of Lil’ Red Riding Hood told from the four POV of the granny, the wolf, the woodsman, and Red herself. Again, it was basically the same half an hour or so over and over but from the different characters’ perspectives. As I watched (and enjoyed) it, I thought back to how it was like Vantage Point in a lot of ways…and then started thinking and wondering what other movies are sort of like this or like the plot where a story is retold over and over only with variables changed.
I could think of two others:
Go is a good movie that has three stories that are connected and intertwined in sort of a “different POV” fashion and of course Run Lola Run, while not being from different points of view, still holds that “same story retold with different variables”.
I love these types of movies. Other than these four, how many others are there? Anyone have any suggestions?
