While commercially successful, Hollywood remakes have never been as popular in academia as with cinema audiences. With some notable exceptions, the subject of the Hollywood remake in Film Studies is less a key debate, more a 'straw man' evoked to denounce the loss of original filmmaking. With a particular emphasis on the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, as well as his often difficult relationship with psychoanalysis, Hollywood Remakes, Deleuze and the Grandfather Paradox offers a new philosophical approach to cinematic remaking. By moving away from a 'spot the difference' approach, it shows how cinematic repetition often articulates the same problems in different ways, just as it expresses core differences in similar ways. The book will appeal to anyone interested in Deleuzian Film Theory, Remake Studies, or the film-philosophy subjects of identity and time, difference and repetition.succeed it.12 Perhaps Psycho is the break in Hollywood history, a short circuit which a€œproduces a sense of the a#39;newa#39; out of a rearrangement of the a#39;olda#39;a€.13 a€œA short circuita€, writes A½iA¾ek, a€œoccurs when there is a faulty connection in the networkanbsp;...
