Dans ces textes parus entre 1964 et 1972 (et, en deux volumes, chez le même éditeur en 1968 et 1972), C. Metz applique au cinéma les méthodes propres à la sémiologie et à la linguistique pour analyser la structure et la signification des films.

Impersonal enunciation, or the place of film by Christian Metz( )

27 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christian Metz is best known for applying Saussurean theories of semiology to film analysis. In the 1970s, he used Sigmund Freud's psychology and Jacques Lacan's mirror theory to explain the popularity of cinema. In this final book, Metz uses the concept of enunciation to articulate how films 'speak' and explore where this communication occurs, offering critical direction for theorists who struggle with the phenomena of new media
Le Signifiant imaginaire : psychanalyse et cinéma by Christian Metz( Book )

42 editions published between 1977 and 2002 in French and Undetermined and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au début des années 60, la grande idée de Christian Metz fut d'aborder, avec les armes de la linguistique, l'objet-cinéma et d'offrir à la discipline ainsi fondée la reconnaissable rigueur d'une science. Celle-ci a des adeptes, maintenant, un peu partout dans le monde et les travaux de Metz sont traduits en une quinzaine de langues étrangères. Au-delà de la critique de films à laquelle nous étions accoutumés, la sémiologie du cinéma apportait à la réflexion, sur un art où elle avait été négligée, une véritable dimension théorique. L'abord de cet objet-cinéma sous l'angle de la psychanalyse vient s'inscrire, pour Metz, sur le même axe de recherche et se situe au même niveau de généralité. Il ne s'agit pas en effet, dans son dessein, de psychanalyser les auteurs ou leurs créatures, mais d'éclairer le cinéma en tant qu'institution et art spécifique, en tant que 'signifiant' fonctionnant dans la région de 'l'imaginaire', avec ce que cela suppose de rites de fréquentation comme de procédés technologiques. Le Signifiant imaginaire, c'est le pseudonyme double du cinéma ressaisi dans une perspective freudienne. --Quatrième de couverture

Conversations with Christian Metz : selected interviews on film theory (1970-1991) by Christian Metz( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1968 to 1991 the acclaimed film theorist Christian Metz wrote several remarkable books on film theory: Essais sur la signification au cinema, tome 1 et 2; Langage et cinéma; Le signifiant imaginaire; and L'Enonciation impersonnelle. These books set the agenda of academic film studies during its formative period. Metz's ideas were taken up, digested, refined, reinterpreted, criticized, and sometimes dismissed, but rarely ignored. This volume collects and translates into English for the first time a series of interviews with Metz, who offers readable summaries, elaborations, and explanations of his sometimes complex and demanding theories of film. He speaks informally of the most fundamental concepts that constitute the heart of film theory as an academic discipline - concepts borrowed from linguistics, semiotics, rhetoric, narratology, and psychoanalysis. Within the colloquial language of the interview, we witness Metz's initial formation, development, and application of these concepts. The interviewers act as curious readers who pose probing questions to Metz about his books, and seek clarification and elaboration of his key concepts. Metz also reveals a series of curious and unusual insights, including the contents of his unpublished (and now apparently 'lost') manuscript, the social networks operative in the French intellectual community during the 1970s and 1980s, Metz's relation to the Filmology movement, and his views on Gilles Deleuze's film theory.

7 editions published between 1975 and 2001 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychanalyse et cinéma sont comme deux jumeaux originaires de la projection. Leurs histoires se déroulent parallèlement. Dans la cure quelquefois émergent des citations filmiques. Issues du patrimoine social commun, elles participent au champ transitionnel. Au-delà de cet échange ne constituent-elles pas un mode particulier d’expression inconsciente et d’élaboration, formes singulières de projections et de représentations, proches du rêve qui autorisent parfois le déploiement plus aisé des affects et l’enrichissement des représentations ?
