Badiou and Cinema - new book

ISBN: 9780748641130

Applies Badiou's philosophy to well-known films such as Hiroshima Mon Amour, Vertigo and The MatrixAlex Ling employs the philosophy of Alain Badiou to answer the question central to all serious film scholarship: 'can cinema be thought?' Treating this question on three levels, the author first asks if we can really think what cinema is, at an ontological level. Secondly, he investigates whether cinema can actually think for itself; that is, whether or not it is truly 'artistic'. Finally, he explores in what ways we can rethink the consequences of the fact that cinema thinks.In answering these questions, the author uses well-known films ranging to illustrate Badiou's philosophy and to consider the ways in which his work can be extended, critiqued and reframed with respect to the medium of cinema. Performing Arts Performing Arts eBook Alex Ling seizes upon the philosophy of Alain Badiou to clarify a central question in film scholarship: can cinema be thought? Tackling this issue on three levels, Ling begins with a reevaluation of common conceptions about cinema, primarily through an ontological investigation of cinema's fundamental nature and purpose. He then explores whether cinema can actually think for itself-- that is, whether it's truly "artistic"--and in conclusion, he considers the consequences of a "thinking" cinema for viewers and filmmakers. In pursuing his thesis, Ling rereads well-known films, from "Hiroshima Mon Amour" (1959) and "Vertigo" (1958) to "The Matrix" (1999), illustrating how Badiou's philosophy works in practice and proving the way in which his thought expands, critiques, and reframes cinema.
