Thanks Nellie,
That CD-Rom comes out of the project at USC that is run by Marsha Kinder. They did one on Pat O'Neill's "Decay of Fiction." You're right that it would make a great website.

  Yuri Tsivian made a really interesting CD-Rom on pre-revolutionary Russian cinema called Immaterial Bodies. It would make a great website, or a great resource for someone looking to build the type of interactive site you are talking about.

    Like you suggest, it would be great to do something like this with film criticism.

      Is anyone aware of a film criticism (or film analysis) website where text is augmented with links to clips that illustrate the text. You are reading an online analysis of Potemkin. Click on the word "montage" and it shows you the sequence that is being analyzed. You can repeat the clip, slow it down, freeze it, zoom in on a detail.

      Alternatively, are there DVDs that do this, either interactively or as a fixed mode of analysis and explication? The professor is lecturing in a classroom, or the critic is featured in a documentary, and their voices carry over clips of what they're talking about, with the same possibilites of repeat, slow, freeze and detail.

      It would be nice, for example, if Criterion's Brakhage releases featured someone like Fred Camper analyzing Stan's complex phrasings, rhymes, etc. in this manner.
