Cinema 1: The Movement Image is a film theory book by the philosopher Gilles Deleuze combining philosophy with film criticism. It was originally published in French as L'Image-mouvement. Cinéma 1 (Les Éditions de Minuit, 1983). It was translated into English by Hugh Tomlinson. In the Preface to the French edition Deleuze says that, "This study is not a history of cinema. It is a taxonomy, an attempt at the classifications of images and signs" and acknowledges the influence of the American pragmatist C.S Peirce and the French philosopher Henri Bergson (pxiv). The cinema covered in the book ranges from the silent era to the 1970s, and includes the work of D. W. Griffith, Abel Gance, Erich von Stroheim, Charlie Chaplin, Sergei Eisenstein, Luis Buñuel, Howard Hawks, Robert Bresson, Jean-Luc Godard, Sidney Lumet and Robert Altman. The second volume, L'Image-temps. Cinéma 2 was published in 1985 (translated as Cinema 2: The Time-Image in 1989).

First Sentence:
