8 thoughts on “Derrida (2002 Documentary)”
Are you familar with House of Leaves? The author (wicked too lazy to look up how to spell his last name right now) did work on this documentary.
i actually searched once, when i was thinking of buying it, to see if biblioklept ever reviewed HOL. didn’t get any results.
I’ve never read H of Leaves, although I browsed it in the bookstore after some recommendations. It seems like a divisive book—one people either love or hate. When I browsed it it seemed fairly, I dunno, gimmicky, but again, I didn’t read it (although I wasn’t compelled to buy it).
While I’m commenting, I think that this movie is waaaaay too gimmicky—although it has lots of great shots of Derrida talking, which is probably its greatest worth. I think that the filmmakers should’ve relaxed a bit and not tried so hard to use deconstructive techniques, I suppose. It sort of smacks of bad grad school work at times. Still, the film works when they manage to ask D an interesting question.
