This chapter is a preparatory and basic foregrounding of the origins of the significance of desire and pleasure in film theory. It explores how and why subjectivity was relevant to film theory and presents a short account of the role of subjectivity in cinepsychoanalysis and the intervention of feminist film theory. The chapter describes newer approaches to theorising the cinematic encounter and discusses Gilles Deleuze's concepts of pleasure, sensation, and a becoming-woman of the cinematic.

Keywords:   desire, pleasure, film theory, subjectivity, feminist film theory, cinematic encounter, Gilles Deleuze, sensation, cinepsychoanalysis, becoming-woman
