The notion of film consciousness is one that has played around various film and philosophical discourses without ever really surfacing as a cogent theory. Representing the first major expression of film consciousness as a tangible concept, this critical study revisits notions of memory, retentional consciousness, narrative expectation, and spatio-temporal perception while also analyzing several major films.The first half of the book focuses on understanding the elements of the film experience - and its associated consciousness - through the descriptive tools of phenomenology. The second part develops the idea of film consciousness as a unique vision of the world and as a large element in the human understanding of reality.Throughout the work, the author combines the ideas of philosophers and film theorists from phenomenology - such as Husserl, Merleau-Ponty, Bazin, and Kracauer - with the postmodernist work of Deleuze and transitional theorists Bergson and Benjamin.
