  • What We Don't See in What We See: A Response to Cinema and Fascination
    • Abstract: The world is an enigma, Nietzsche said, but an enigma composed of its various solutions (qtd. in Calasso 3). In much the same way, we can say that fascination in cinema is an enigma made up of its various interpretations. The essays in this special issue of Postmodern Culture, each brilliant in its own very different way, draw on a wide range of disciplines—from psychoanalysis and philosophy to sound art and quantum physics—as if to say that what is fascinating about cinema exists everywhere and not just in cinema alone. However, each essay manages to construct its argument around a reading of one or two films. The arguments are staged in dialogue with Freud or Lacan, Blanchot, Barad, or Bersani, but these ...

  • Fanged Future: A review of Jerry Rafiki Jenkins, The Paradox of Blackness
           in African American Vampire Fiction
    • Abstract: At the mention of the word "vampire," a waxen figure of European origin leaps to mind. However, Jerry Rafiki Jenkins insists in The Paradox of Blackness in African American Vampire Fiction that vampire myths have an under-explored heritage in Africa and African diasporic cultures, and that recent African American vampirology offers a subaltern approach to the genre rather than merely a sub-generic borrowing of Dracula-derived tropes. A figure conjured to navigate the horrors of colonial violence and enslavement through the nineteenth century, the black vampire re-emerges in 1970s vampire films such as Ganja and Hess and Blacula. These works inform the black vampire fiction to come and the resurrection of seemingly ... Read More

  • Queer Nations and Trans-lations: A review of Akiko Shimizu, "'Imported'
           Feminism and 'Indigenous' Queerness: From Backlash to Transphobic Feminism
           in Transnational Japanese Context." Lecture and Seminar, University of
           California, Berkeley, 27-28 Jan. 2020
    • Abstract: What does it mean to be trans in Japan, or in Japanese' How does it correspond with transness in North America or in English' Terms and identities travel and are translated, existing not in a relationship of one-to-one correspondence, but rather in an association with one another. To be gei or toransujendā in Japanese is not the same as to be "gay" or "transgender" in English; although the Japanese terms are loanwords from English, the meanings, identities, and practices that are organized under these terms are not exactly the same. This difference is central to Akiko Shimizu's work in both English and Japanese. In a 2007 article, she discusses the double bind of "Japanese queers," whose ability to identify ... Read More

  • Neoliberalism in Crisis: A review of The Politics of Debt: Essays and
           Interviews, edited by Sjoero Van Tuinen and Arjen Kleinherenbrink
    • Abstract: As I write this, governments the world over are calling boisterously for the "reopening" of global, national, and local markets in the face of the biggest pandemic since the 1918 influenza. The reasoning is familiar: work and consumption must return to recent levels of growth lest we slip into an unprecedented economic depression. Perhaps nowhere has this persistent and hysterical call been more pronounced than in the U.S., where sickly and irrational reactions to catastrophe have come to define the current regime. A healthy economy trumps public health. What we're witnessing is an insistence on the ultimate kind of debt: the demand for the sacrifice of countless human lives—particularly those lacking financial ... Read More

  • Introduction: "The Most Fascinating Medium"
    • Abstract: Their enchantment is disenchantment.Fascination is our sensation.Speaking to students at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles in 1975, Ingmar Bergman evokes familiar tropes when he enthuses about cinema's ability to prompt a cognition closer to dream logic than to rational thought. "To me, the cinematography, the real cinematography, is very, very close to our dreams," he asserts.You can't find in any other art, you can't create a situation that is [as] close to the dreams as [in] cinematography when it's at its best. Think [of] the time gap: you can make things as long as you want, exactly as in a dream; you can make things as short as you want, exactly as in a dream. You are—as a director, as a creator of ...

  • The Violence of a Fascination with* a Visible Form (on Martyrs, Cruelty,
           Horror, Ethics) [*on and vs. with vs. as]
    • Abstract: The imperfect is the tense of fascination: it seems to be alive and yet it doesn't move: imperfect presence, imperfect death; neither oblivion nor resurrection; simply the exhausting lure of memory. From the start, greedy to play a role, scenes take their position in memory: often I feel this, I foresee this, at the very moment when these scenes are forming.Fascination is neither knowledge nor ignorance: It is an enigmatic relation to what we do not know, a response to other imaginaries, other musics, other strange gods. We can call it, in a first approximation, a paracritical mode of attention.and, conj., adv., and n.from the Old English ond, 'thereupon, next'I. Coordinating. Introducing a word, phrase, clause, or ... Read More

  • A Moving Which Is Not a Moving: Michael Snow's Wavelength
    • Abstract: "He sat and stared at the sea, which appeared all surface and twinkle, far shallower than the spirit of man. It was the abyss of human illusion that was the real, the tideless deep."Michael Snow's film Wavelength may be best misremembered as the story of a 45-minute zoom shot across a New York City loft to a photograph of waves that fills the screen. Except that it's not a continual zoom but a montage of reframed space, and it's not a story but a flattening, a Steinian geography of layers. While it has also commonly been taken as a staging of cinematic apparatus theory,1 Wavelength is arguably fascinated with another apparatus that toys with waves and particles. This essay reads Wavelength through the ... Read More

  • Circuits of Fascination and Inspiration: Blanchot, Bellour, Grandrieux
    • Abstract: French experimental film director Philippe Grandrieux opens the shooting diary for his film Malgré la nuit (Despite the Night; completed in 2015 and released in 2016) with an epigraph from Maurice Blanchot (1907-2003): "Every art draws its origin from an exceptional fault" ("Tout art tire son origine d'un défaut exceptionnel"; Blanchot, Livre 148, Book 107). The diary was published in 2016 in two parts in the French journals Trafic and Mettray. It describes the difficulties experienced by Grandrieux while filming and reflects on the process by which the film came into existence. Why cite Blanchot here' What does Blanchot's literary criticism from the 1950s have to do with a contemporary arthouse film'In this essay ... Read More

  • Accompanying Images: Leo Bersani and Cinematic Fascination
    • Abstract: Our concern with history … is a concern with preformed images already imprinted on our brains, images at which we keep staring while the truth lies elsewhere, away from it all, somewhere as yet undiscovered.… there is almost always something else going on.In a recent recontextualization of the French philosopher's work, Calum Watt suggests that we read Maurice Blanchot as a thinker of cinema. While Blanchot's oeuvre includes only a few oblique references to films, Watt argues that his philosophy overlaps with film theory at the site of two concepts: the image and fascination. With Blanchot, these recurrent film-theoretical concepts undergo a productive estrangement. We can approach this estrangement by observing ... Read More

  • The Power of Absolute Nothing: Psycho-Sexual Fascination and Sadomasochism
           in Secretary
    • Abstract: Applied to states, objects, and persons in sources as diverse as songs, films, and viral videos, the term fascination typically has positive connotations in contemporary usage. However, the etymological associations of fascination, which include being immobilized by the power of the gaze, charmed, enchanted, attracted, enraptured, seized, captured, dazzled, suggest more sinister origins in its predication on power and the dynamics of interpersonal/interobjective mediation. Within the psychoanalytic tradition, Sigmund Freud connects fascination with amorousness in Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego (1921), in which psycho-sexual fascination refers to the negatively dis-agential binding properties that ...
