Description - Deleuze and Cinema by Barbara M. Kennedy
This work aims to re-ignite debates about film as an art form - as part of an aesthetic process which 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.
