Sample text

I will emphasize the hypothesis that flows from this and that finds support in a third remark: issuing from the movement-image, the timeimage is traversed by the movement of a becoming that, in taking the name of “thought of the outside,” puts into play thought itself through an intrication that remains to be unraveled. “Thinking belongs to the outside”: this firm affirmation by Deleuze in Foucault 42 retroactively illuminates the genesis of a new stake in The Time-Image and, more broadly, in The Movement-Image and The Time-Image as a whole.

If time is becoming, there is an antinomy between the image and time in The Time-Image, hence the transfer of time toward thought, declared in chapter 7, that quietly accompanies the reflection on Bergson (for whom the time-image extends naturally into a thought-image39), as well as the formation of time-images themselves. Isn’t Thought Resnais’s only character since his very first films? One last word on the complex articulation of becoming and the outside. Becoming is only force, but Deleuze’s outside, which follows on its heels, oscillates between form and force.

To do this, he draws on Blanchot’s critique of the power of speech but robs it of the critique of vision that Blanchot associates with it when, in the same motion, he calls into question the possibility of seeing the visible. What should we retain of this trajectory sketched out in broad strokes? In the first place, this—the thought of the outside, which is a force of exclusion and upheaval—has become, through the strange use Blanchot makes of it, a power for including an exteriority that burrows inside the image.
