The Desiring-Image

Gilles Deleuze and Contemporary Queer Cinema

Nick Davis

  • Unique combination of movies in queer-cinema context (David Cronenberg, Claire Denis, Cheryl Dunye, Todd Haynes, etc.)
  • Innovative reading of Gilles Deleuze's work, combining his film-related texts with his major philosophical tracts
  • Approach to recent queer theory that expands beyond familiar New Queer Cinema group of the 1990s and familiar queer-theory touchstones
  • High-level film theory and scholarship made accessible by a professor who doubles as a popular movie reviewer and critic
