Film-Philosophy review: ‘David Deamer (2016) Deleuze’s Cinema Books: Three Introductions to the Taxonomy of Images‘ (2017)

by Jacques de Villiers
Volume 21 issue 2, June 2017

“Within Anglophone film studies of the last twenty years, perhaps no other philosopher has been the subject of so many monographs, anthologies, and articles as Gilles Deleuze, especially the ideas found in his two books on cinema […] A question inevitably arises, then: do we need another introduction, let alone three?” – Jacques de Villiers

by Vili Maunula
21 August 2016

The Spectre of Impossibility is a well written, clear, insightful and always to-the-point examination of the ways in which Japanese cinema has (and has not) dealt with the atomic bombs… [I]t is the first English language book to properly delve into this subject matter, and I congratulate Deamer for both the depth and the breadth with which he approaches this challenging topic…” – Vili Maunula

Choice review ‘Deleuze, Japanese Cinema, and the Atom Bomb: The Spectre of Impossibility’ (2014)

by Robert Ducharme
Volume 52 issue 5, May 2014

In a 30-page introduction… Deamer… lays out Deleuze’s theory of cinema, found in his Cinema I and Cinema II… then uses Deleuze’s tool kit to extract the possibilities of meaning from post–WW II Japanese war films. Possibilities is key: Deamer says Deleuze’s theory is broad enough to allow for a variety of readings, even contradictory ones… Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty.
