thoughts_still4“A wordless, associative, haunted journey – sometimes rueful and sobering, sometimes very funny – not just through the history of cinematic innovation, but through the 20th century itself.” — The Guardian

Described in an opening text as a “personal history of cinema, partially inspired by [French philosopher] Gilles Deleuze.” THE THOUGHTS THAT ONCE WE HAD  from master cinematic essayist Thom Andersen (LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF)  is a richly digressive journey through cinema, that also takes inspiration from Jean-Luc Godard’s multi-part HISTOIRE(S) DU CINEMA.

thoughts-pic

A found-footage film composed entirely of unidentified, yet often recognizable film clips and concise intertitles written by Andersen, Thoughts leaps associatively across a vast territory spanning from Griffith to Godard, using dynamically cinematic images and sequences not to explain, but to embody Deleuzian ideas in all their rich ambiguity and nuance.

[directed by: Thom Andersen, 2015, 108 minutes]
