Animation and Alienation: Bergson’s Critique of the Cinématographe and the Paradox of Mechanical Motion

Gunning asks:

"... does film theory offer an account of cinematic movement that parallels its traditional topics, such as montage or the ontology of the photographic image? The technical production of motion may form the Freudian repressed subject of film theory."

He then provides a considered exploration of Deleuze, Bergson and cinematic movement.
