Deleuze and Cinema

Barbara M. Kennedy

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the film Romeo and Juliet in the context of Gilles Deleuze's concept of sensations, suggesting that at the narrative and ideological level, the film seems to discredit romantic love premised on a self–other relational. It argues that despite the film's exemplification as a post-modern parody of romantic love, it simultaneously valorises love through a neo-aesthetic beyond subjectivity.

Keywords:   Romeo and Juliet, Gilles Deleuze, sensations, romantic love, self–other relational, subjectivity
