This is important and needed work. Davis' deeply original move is to fold Deleuze's film concepts into the Anti-Oedipus and to remap them, and in so doing to produce a distinctly original perspective for assessing and revaluing the films that inspire him. The Desiring-Image has renewed and extended Deleuze's concepts in ways that will encourage the formation of new perspectives and forms of analysis for cinema, queer or otherwise. * D.N. Rodowick, author of The Virtual Life of Film *
The Desiring-Image brings an exciting new perspective on film and desire. Impressive, at times startling in its groundbreaking originality, The Desiring-Image will stimulate anyone interested in how cinema produces the desire which shapes the worlds we inhabit. * David Martin-Jones, author of Deleuze and World Cinemas *
At its best, Nick Davis' The Desiring-Image thinks through Deleuze to explode our conception of the queer cinema canon, to challenge our understanding of homoeroticism, and to consider the ways queer cinema imagined itself in retrospect. This is an exhaustive yet lovingly written perverse intervention into film theory. * Lucas Hilderbrand, author of Inherent Vice: Bootleg Histories of Videotape and Copyright *
Seductive in its intellect and humbling in its prose, The Desiring-Image marks an important new entry into queer film studies and film theory more broadly. Queering Deleuze and 'deleuzing' queer film, Nick Davis' 'deterritorializing' treatise revives the radicalism and hope of both new queer cinema and the scholarship surrounding it. * Michele Aaron, editor of New Queer Cinema: A Critical Reader *
