Abstract

The concept of the machine circulates in the work of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari in highly abstracted terms, yet they frequently maintained that it was not to be understood as a metaphor. This paper draws on the example of the film Forbidden Planet to explore the potential for cinematic representation to convey the terms under which Deleuze and Guattari ask us to imagine the machinic complex.
