The cinema, like language, can be said to exist as a system of differences and in his latest book the acclaimed philosopher Jacques Ranciere relates cinema to literature and theatre. With literature, he argues, cinema takes its narrative conventions, while at the same time effacing its images and its philosophy; and it rejects theatre, while also fulfilling theatre's dream. Built on these contradictions, the cinema is the real, material space in which one feels moved by the spectacle of shadows. Thus for Ranciere, the cinema is the always disappointed dream of a language of images.

Recensioner i media

"Ranciere's writings offer one of the few conceptualizations of how we are to continue to resist." --Slavoj iek "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, Ranciere shows a way out of the malaise." --Liam Gillick "Whether detailing Bela Tarr's signature panning shots or the role of flames in Vincente Minnelli, Ranciere is a passionate and acute cinephile." --Alberto Toscano, "Film Quarterly"
