everywhere the newer post-war cinemas offered comparative or indeed greater luxury than the best live theatres. Increasingly, middle-class patrons were to be found going to the newer cinemas; the existence of a clientele of similar social standing was important in fostering the cinema-going habit. There was not universal approval for this new cultural trend. In 1919 the Editor of The Play Pictorial visited several cinemas and

Epstein’s philosophy of the cinema
Christophe Wall-Romana

Epstein was in eclipse (1945–80). Or, to put it another way, Epstein’s cinema and his philosophy of the cinema have, according to Deleuze’s tacit proposal, become subsumed within post-war films as their latent principle of composition. Hence, when Deleuze defines the time–image of post-war cinema, his formulation appears to describe Madeline’s animated portrait in La Chute de la maison Usher (to which he refers elsewhere in the Cinema books): A two-sided image, actual and virtual is formed. It is as if an image in a mirror, a photograph, a postcard, came to life

philosophy, Gilles Deleuze formalised a seismic change in cinematic space, perception and subjectivity in terms of the transformation of the ‘image-movement’ of silent and classical cinema, marked by an aesthetics of action and movement, into the ‘image-temps’ of modern (essentially post-war) cinema. ‘Duration’ (‘la durée’) – which Deleuze, following Bergson, saw as immanent to the universe – took over ‘action’, for cinema could no longer relay completed events (the result in large part of the crisis in representation following the Holocaust). The ‘event’ is now always in
