Deleuze and Cinema

Barbara M. Kennedy

Edinburgh University Press

This book discusses the relevance of Gilles Deleuze's philosophy for the study of cinema. It provides synthesis of Deleuzian and post-structuralist feminist philosophy and a reconceiving of the aesthetic to explain the cinematic as a material rupture. The chapter shows how contemporary film theory has made some inroads into alternatives to cinepsychoanalysis, and explores Deleuze's ideas on desire and sensation and how they might be substantively relevant to a new mind-set of film theory. It analyses several films through Deluzian deterritorialisations.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, cinema, feminist philosophy, material rupture, film theory, cinepsychoanalysis, desire, sensation, Deluzian deterritorialisations
