Nashville by Robert Altman (1975) is the first one that came off the top of my head. Probably some others before that one though.
At wave level, everything exists as a contradiction. Everything is existing in more than one stage/place at any given moment. Everything must move/vibrate and constantly change to exist. Everything, including buildings, mountains, oceans and thoughts.

P's tired (and brilliant play on words, btw), so I'll go ahead ask you...

the only reason u get "smashed" is cos u ask retarded questions.

the answer to this one is "how effing limited is ur knowledge of film that u seriously believe for a second that sum jerk, almost 100 years after cinema was invented, was the first to think of telling more than one story at once????"

read a book, son, check other sites on the interweb, parallel/intertwining stories was one of the greatest developments in cinema history. i mean, the level of ignorance in ur questions is just mind boggling.

there must be so little going on up there that u make this guy..

That was unfair and completely unwarranted to call Tarantino a jerk. I am disgusted.

explanation?

Okay. A quote:

Quote
I really do think directing is a young man's game. If I say Martin Scorses' movies are getting kind of geriatric he can say, "F_ck you, man! I'm doing what I want to do, I'm following my muse," and he's one hundred percent right. I'm in my church praying to my God and he's in his church praying to his. There was a time we were in the same church, and I miss that. I don't want to go to that church. If I was headed to that church, I would write novels.

And another:

Quote
EW: If you were teaching a class on your own films, what deficiences would you point out?

QT: The answer is none. I'm sure somebody else might find weaknesses, but I can't. If there's a weakness, I don't do it — you'll never see the scene.

Just things like that. That's all I'm talking about. Those are things that a jerk would say.

Thanks for clearing all that up, guys. I didn't realize there were MOVIES before Tarantino.
