BLUEPRINT FOR A MANIFESTO OF ALIENIST CINEMA

 

The very origin of the SYSTEM OF CINEMA must be subverted:

 

  1. cinéma: l’autre monde

“For any ardent materialism, truth is madness.” (Land)

For an ardent capitalism, madness is truth.

 

  1. cinéma: l’histoire

Structured LIKE A LANGUAGE, the filmic 4th-dimension is an unconscious colonised by a system of hyper-production, commodified into a SUBJECT whose meaning it is.

 

  1. cinéma: le réel

Just as pathology denotes the abnormal,

the image produces the real.

 

  1. cinéma: l’aliénation

Reflecting the sexual logic of taboo & transgression, the SYSTEM OF CINEMA venerates order & derives its gratification principally from it. It proffers emancipation as the zero sum in a movement of convulsive signification: cinema or nothing. As desire is the discourse of the unconscious, cinema is the dream of capitalism.

 

The armature of any system of representation is MONTAGE:

 

Montage isn’t an attribute.      <–>      Montage is (image) ontology.

 

The IMAGE is abstracted from montage as a quantum state is abstracted from superposition: event from probability.

 

Montage as xeno-paradox:

The autopoietic “interval” of a between-two-angular-momentums;

The indivisible Planck limit of a “difference-without-terms”;

The teleology of the present; of presence, as WRITING (cinematographia).

 

Montage doesn’t produce an image of thought (dialectics), it is the operation of cinematic thought “itself.”

 

ENTROPY is the dramaturgy of FILM FORM: the eternally diminishing return, refracted, polarised.

 

The subversion of cinema is the dissipation of IMAGE as “surplus production” into a logistics of NON-WORK. Montage as radical AMBIVIOLENCE.
