Sound is a component of the movement-image, unless otherwise specified. It is all of these complex functions of the cinema that interest Deleuze: how can this mechanical and technical thing produce such a body of thought; of images; of knowledge; of actual ontology? These issues provide Deleuze with a good alibi of the properly philosophical to make his inquiry into the nature of the Movement: the Movement-image 29 differential as a movement that produces thought and creates the world realities that we subscribe to, and that operate to configure us, through duration.
The movement image has two sides,’ Deleuze explains of this apparent paradox, ‘one in relation to objects whose relative position it varies, the other in relation to a whole – of which it expresses an absolute change’ (C2: 34). This ‘cinematographic whole’ is given through camera movements, cessations and ruptures (C1: 27). But it is a false sense of unity given by the movement-image, as Deleuze argues that any cinematic ‘whole’ is always ‘open’ (C1: 28). Any ‘truth’ of an image, as we shall see, is created within the modulations of the image-set, one side in a ‘process of differentiation’, one side engaged in a ‘process of specification’ (C2: 29 original emphasis; see chapter 10 Time).
The movement-image, says Deleuze, is ‘the thing itself caught in movement as continuous function’ (C2: 27): It is an interactive encounter that engenders further movement and perception of other dimensions of life. What is Movement? 1 Movement 28 Deleuze and Cinema in the cinema is different from the kind of movement produced by any of the other arts. In general, if we think of movement and the cinema, we think of the term cinematography, which in technical terms is a consideration of the camera’s ability to record kinetic activity.
