One of the heartfelt aims of this book is to popularise the possibilities of film (of all moving sound-images) by reinventing the language of its description. Too little is written about the power and impact of images – the writing on film that reaches the public is almost exclusively led by plot and acting and cultural references. My argument is that reconceptualising film as thinking will hopefully allow a more poetic entry to the intelligence of film. Filmosophy does not just offer a linking of thinking to film (not just an interest in making the comparison), but an analysis of film as its own kind of thought.
