Show Summary Details

Preview

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
