The Matrix of Visual Culture: Working with Deleuze in Film Theory (Cultural Memory in the Present)

Patricia Pisters


This ebook explores Gilles Deleuze's contribution to movie idea. in line with Deleuze, we have now come to dwell in a universe which may be defined as metacinematic. His notion of pictures implies a brand new type of digicam recognition, person who determines our perceptions and experience of selves: features of our subjectivities are shaped in, for example, action-images, affection-images and time-images. we are living in a matrix of visible tradition that's continuously relocating and altering. each one photograph is usually hooked up to an assemblage of impacts and forces. This ebook offers a version, in addition to many concrete examples, of ways to paintings with Deleuze in movie conception. It asks questions about the universe as metacinema, subjectivity, violence, feminism, monstrosity, and tune. one of the modern movies it discusses inside of a Deleuzian framework are Strange Days, Fight Club, and Dancer within the Dark.
