Chapter 9. The Action Image: The Large Form

Chapitre 9. L’image-action : la grande forme


1. From situation to action: ‘secondness’

1. De la situation à l’action : la « secondéité »



the modes of behavior, however studied they are, are not true habits, true responses to situations, but conceal a fault or cracks which cause them to disintegrate. This is the story of Hawks’ Scarface, where all the hero’s cracks, all the little faults which made him take it too hard, converge in the appalling crisis to which he succumbs on the death of his sister. [Deleuze Cinema I 1986:149]


les comportements, si expérimentés soient-ils, ne sont pas de vrais habitus, de vraies réponses à des situations, mais recèlent une faille ou des fêlures qui les désintègrent. C’est l’histoire de « Scarface » de Hawks, où toutes les fêlures du héros, toutes les petites failles par lesquelles il en faisait trop, so réunissent dans une crise abjecte qui l’emporte avec la mort de sa sœur. [Deleuze Cinéma 1, 1985 :201]
