Badiou and Cinema

Alex Ling

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter summarises the findings of the previous chapters into fifteen theses on impurification and cinema, listing the key characteristics of cinema as an art. It examines the disparate cinemas of Alfred Hitchcock and Jean-Luc Godard in terms of the peculiarly cinematic knot they tie between art and politics, and suggests that they both epitomise the idea of cinema being a mass art.

Keywords:   impurification, cinema, art, Alfred Hitchcock, Jean-Luc Goddard, art and politics, mass art
