Cinema and Philosophy


On Alain Badiou’s CINEMA [Los Angeles Review of Books]

Alain Badiou has emerged as one of the most significant French philosophers since Deleuze, and his more recent writings on cinema might be read as a kind of dialogue with Deleuze, a sometime enemy who has deeply marked his thought. Cinema, a collection of interviews and occasional pieces spanning more than half a century, offers not a systematic work of philosophy so much as a philosopher’s engagements with an art form over a period of time. Through the link of cinema we receive a backdoor entry into Badiou’s intellectual trajectory and interventions into his times.
