Raymond Bellour : Cinema and the Moving Image Hardback


A comprehensive study of Raymond Bellour, one of the most important foundational theorists of Film StudiesOne of the most influential figures in French film philosophy, Raymond Bellour's interests range across cinema, art, literature and philosophy, and his work sits at the critical juncture between the cinematic experience in the period of classical cinema to the new forms of spectatorship ushered in by digital media in the 21st century.

With a succinct account of Bellour's oeuvre, this book provides a generous introduction to his ideas on cinema, an annotated bibliography of his work, and a six-chapter translation of a substantial and wide-ranging interview previously unavailable in English.

Providing a clear, systematic account of the evolution of Bellour's thought on the nature of cinematic representation, the impact of digital technology and the response of the spectator, this is an essential guide to the work of a major contemporary thinker.Key featuresProvides a clear, systematic exposition of the evolution of Bellour's thought over 60 yearsMakes available in an English translation a hitherto unpublished interview with Bellour from 2015Includes an annotated bibliography, with brief abstracts of all of his books and most important articles
