About the Author

Alex Ling is Research Lecturer in Communication and Media Studies at the University of Western Sydney.


As learned as it is exciting. Alex Ling has produced a textbook example of how to investigate Badiou's "Platonist Cinema" with utter rigor and fidelity. From "Hiroshima Mon Amour" to "The Matrix", he provides readings of films that mix his own ingenuity with Badiou's insights into the inessence of cinema. Yet "Badiou and Cinema" is more than simply an illustration of philosophical thought. It opens up the possibility of a truly thoughtful cinema, a cinema that thinks events in its own way, beyond the exigencies of both extant film theory and philosophy.--John Mullarkey, Kingston University
