Deleuze and Cinemaby Kara Keeling
The following selection of film clips from films discussed by French philosopher Gilles Deleuze were compiled in the Fall of 2009 by the participants in Professor Kara Keeling's Critical Studies graduate seminar on Deleuze and Culture at the University of Southern California.
Throughout his cinema books, Gilles Deleuze refers to various films in order to illuminate what they make available to thought, given the theoretical approach to cinema Deleuze develops in his work with film. The selection of clips available here are from films referenced by Deleuze. The commentary that accompanies them have been written as part of the course requirements for Professor Kara Keeling's advanced graduate seminar on Gilles Deleuze and Culture.
They are made available here for use by others working with Deleuze's Cinema 1: The Movement-Image and Cinema 2: The Time-Image. In the spirit of Critical Commons, others are invited to add clips, commentary, or other contributions to our engagements with Deleuze's cinema books.
