Cinema 1: The Movement-Image is a 1983 book by Gilles Deleuze linking philosophy and film theory. Basing many of his arguments in the theories and observations of the philosopher Henri Bergson, Deleuze argues that film allows for an awareness of the "movement-image": objects revealed in continual movement. Deleuze examines the significance of frame, shot and montage and categorizes three types of movement-image: perception-image, affection-image and action-image, corresponding to the voyeuristic long shot, the evocative close-up, and dramatic medium shot, respectively.
