This chapter analyses the works of Gilles Deleuze relevant to political cinema. It proposes that contemporary cinema should be conceived as a speech-act in free indirect discourse in order to address the issue of contemporary political cinema. The chapter suggests a more polemical reading of Deleuze's cinema books and argues that there is a dialectical shift between the movement-image and the time-image, or, between First, Second, and Third Cinema.

Keywords:   political cinema, Gilles Deleuze, speech-act, free indirect discourse, cinema books, dialectical shift, movement-image, time-image
