A wide-ranging collection of essays on the film-philosophy of Gilles Deleuze

Deleuze and Film explores how different films from around the world 'think' about topics like history, national identity, geopolitics, ethics, gender, genre, affect, religion, surveillance culture, digital aesthetics and the body. Mapping the global diversity of this cinematic thinking, this book greatly expands upon the range of films discussed in Deleuze's Cinema books.

Deleuze and Film presents a rich collection of essays that takes Deleuze's work on cinema out of its dominant Eurocentric corpus. Taking us on an inspiring world tour of film analysis and creative conceptual thinking, this book testifies to the continuing productive generosity of Deleuze's film-philosophy, and includes a dynamic range and depth of film scholarship.
- Patricia Pisters, Professor of Media and Film Studies, University of Amsterdam

This book testifies to the continuing vitality of Gilles Deleuze's Cinema volumes: they still offer resources to film scholars and theorists today even when they are working on the sorts of films that Deleuze himself never commented on.

- Steven Shaviro, DeRoy Professor of English, Wayne State University
