Cinema, like language, can be said to exist as a system of differences. In his latest book, acclaimed philosopher Jacques Ranci re looks at cinematic art in comparison to its corollary forms in literature and theatre. From literature, he argues, cinema takes its narrative conventions, while at the same time effacing literature's images and philosophy; and film rejects theatre, while also fulfilling theatre's dream.

Built on these contradictions, the cinema is the real, material space in which one is moved by the spectacle of shadows. Thus, for Ranci re, film is the perpetually disappointed dream of a language of images.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Jacques Ranci re:

"Whether detailing Bela Tarr's signature panning shots or the role of flames in Vincente Minnelli, Ranci re is a passionate and acute cinephile." --Alberto Toscano, Film Quarterly

"Ranci re's writings offer one of the few conceptualizations of how we are to continue to resist." --Slavoj i ek

"His art lies in the rigor of his argument--its careful, precise unfolding--and at the same time not treating his reader, whether university professor or unemployed actress, as an imbecile." --Kristin Ross

"In the face of impossible attempts to proceed with progressive ideas within the terms of postmodernist discourse, Ranci re shows a way out of the malaise." --Liam Gillick
