Rhizomes 16: Jason Skeet

Rhizomes 16: Jason Skeet | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
Xaos's insight:

In his books on cinema [1] Deleuze examines how film can create an image of time outside of the lived time of human experience. An inhuman time, accessed through the technology of film and, specifically, post-Second World War cinematic expression – a cinema that was, according to Deleuze, symptomatic of a paradigm shift in Western culture. So it is that Virginia Woolf's 1926 essay The Cinema [2] was a portent of the cultural developments that Deleuze was later to explore. This connection – Woolf plus Deleuze – also raises the question as to why does a philosopher who is always allotted a place in the canon of post-structuralism make frequent selections from Modernism to illustrate his ideas? In what follows, and by way of responding to this question, I shall link Deleuze's concept of the outside to what is, I argue, a consonance between Woolf's and Deleuze's ideas on cinema. A cluster of Deleuzian ideas related to his cinema work – the brain as a screen or interval, the time-image and becoming – will be discussed alongside a reading of Woolf's novel The Waves, [3] showing how this work built on Woolf's own uses of cinema and how Deleuze's use of cinema may be transposed to the study of a text. I will suggest that what is at stake in this attraction between Woolf and Deleuze via the cinema – and by extension, the philosopher's references to other writers – is an engagement with two other questions: what is experimental and what is vitalism?

It’s a sad fact that the vast majority of silent movies in Japan have been lost thanks to human carelessness, earthquakes and the grim efficiency of the United States Air Force. The first films of hugely important figures like Kenji Mizoguchi, Yasujiro Ozu, and Hiroshi Shimizu have simply vanished.

Jim Jarmusch’s Petrified Hipness - The New Yorker | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
Following Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” Jim Jarmusch’s new film, “Only Lovers Left Alive,” is the second-most-intensely curated movie of the season, starting with its first images, in which a galaxy of stars morphs into the spinning, gleaming groove of a vintage rock 45 on a turntable.

Terry Gilliam Explains The Difference Between Kubrick (Great Filmmaker) and Spielberg (Less So) | Cinema Zeal | Scoop.it
One thing that bothers Terry Gilliam about Hollywood is the pressure it exerts on filmmakers to resolve their stories into happy endings. In this interesting clip, Gilliam makes his point by comparing the work of Steven Spielberg--perhaps the quintessential Hollywood director--with that of Stanley Kubrick, who, like Gilliam, steered clear of Hollywood and lived a life of exile in England.
