Experiments with cinematic time is a concept in cinema concerned with fragmentation of narrative and with nonlinearity of narrative.

Some films experimenting with cinematic time are Rashomon (1950), Last Year at Marienbad (1961), Run Lola Run (1998), Groundhog Day (1993), Memento (2000), Irréversible (2002).

Some films concerned with time travel are La Jetée (1962), The Terminator (1984) and Back to the Future (1985).

Has cinematic time influenced literature? The case of Time's Arrow is an interesting one. The novel mimics the playing backwards of a film.
