CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

In the following text, I suggest to show the relation that the cinema maintains with the thought, that for Deleuze represent his original and exclusive reference. The cinema, an art in movement composed by blocks of space-time in becoming (images-movement et images-time), has the impact of a “noochoc” on the brain of the spectator, forcing the mind to emerge. Then, I’ll analyse how the affirmation of the thought to the cinema is threaten by the power of the media that try to submit his aesthetic and noetic potentialities at the service of a social function of control, in order to form the consciences and suppress all kind of dissidence. What is remain of the cinema of today? In the opinion of Deleuze, it can follow his destiny and became an act of resistance.
