This chapter explores how Gilles Deleuze takes us beyond subjectivity, subsuming it through the thinking of affect and becoming-woman, and beyond into sensation. It elaborates on the notion that the aesthetic experience of the cinematic encounter is felt at a level beyond that of the subjective. The chapter looks at Deleuze's concept of becoming-woman and its relation to the concept of affectivity and sensation, and examines how subjectivity, mind/brain, and body become imbricated in the process of the cinematic encounter.

Keywords: Gilles Deleuze; subjectivity; becoming-woman; sensation; aesthetic experience; cinematic experience; affectivity
