Outstanding Academic Title, Choice Magazine

In recent years, the recognition of Gilles Deleuze as one of the major philosophers of the twentieth century has heightened attention to his brilliant and complex writings on film. What is the place of Cinema 1 and Cinema 2 in the corpus of his philosophy? How does his philosophy of film combine and further his approaches to time, movement, and perception, and how does it produce an escape from subjectivity and a plunge into the immanence of images? What does it tell us about perceiving a world in images—indeed about our relation to the world? These are the central questions addressed in Paola Marrati's powerful and clear elucidation of Deleuze's philosophy of film.

"A surprising, rewarding, and insightful text that breaks new ground, Cinema and Philosophy does a great service: it helps us believe in a 'new' and compelling future for Deleuzian studies of film and philosophy."— MLN

"Readers looking for an introduction to Deleuze's work on cinema will find it in Marrati's evident commitment to precision and her remarkable clarity in the face of a series of notoriously complex texts."— Scope
