Filmul şi Beckett

When Samuel Beckett Tried to Capture the Power of the Movies By Siddhartha Mahanta

The ideas about perception that Beckett explores in “Film” are both grandly philosophical and deeply personal. Lipman describes the movie as a “tongue-in-cheek but pointed debate” between Beckett and the Irish enlightenment philosopher George Berkeley—specifically, Berkeley’s notion that esse est percipi (“To be is to be perceived”).* But Lipman also notes that the very phenomenon of being recorded both repulsed and resonated deeply with Beckett, who was famously averse to having his voice captured on tape. He “felt the camera’s eye as a literal wound,” Lipman argues. Cinema was, for Beckett, something like the fullest form of perception, with all the invasiveness and pain that that entailed.
