Doubting Vision

Film and the Revelationist Tradition

Malcolm Turvey

  • Presupposes no prior knowledge of the theories and films it examines, providing instead an overview of each of the theories in addition to analyses of films and filmmaking techniques influenced by these theories
  • Written in a clear, accessible style and avoids unnecessary jargon
  • Covers the revelationist tradition from its inception in the 1920s all the way through to its contemporary manifestations in the work of Gilles Deleuze, contrasting it with the modernist and realist traditions and, where relevant, uncovering the sources of each of the theorists and filmmakers' skepticism in the historical contexts in which they worked
