This chapter examines altered states of time of the cinematic distortions of space and time via the philosophical thoughts of Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze. It explains Deleuze's belief that the interval of the time-image is located in editing, framing, lighting, overlay and uses of cinematic insights to explore the philosophical debates on the nature of time and human consciousness. The chapter provides critical analysis of several relevant films including Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, Werner Herzog's Heart of Glass and Jordan Belson's abstract animation Re-Entry.

Keywords:   altered states, space and time, Henri Bergson, Gilles Deleuze, human consciousness, Space Odyssey, Heart of Glass, Re-Entry
