Show Summary Details


This book aims to re-ignite debates about film as an art form – as part of an aesthetic process that incorporates the ‘bodies’ of our material, technological and molecular worlds. The author suggests that these different perceptions of ‘body’ are responsible, as well as the brain/mind, for the ways in which visual elements of colour, movement, rhythm and sensation are acquired within, through and beyond our consciousness. Through discussions of Orlando, The English Patient, Romeo and Juliet, Strange Days and Leon, the book posits a creative collusion between Deleuzian philosophy – specifically Deleuze's ideas about desire, pleasure, sensation, affect and ‘becoming-woman’ – and contemporary film studies.

Keywords: Deleuze; Deleuzian philosophy; film; cinema; body; desire; pleasure; affect; sensation; consciousness
