Ames Hodges and Mike Taormina.


  • …[A] dense and illuminating filmed interview structured as an alphabet primer (A as in 'Animal,' B as in 'Boire,' C as in 'Culture'...)… it's not a standard interview but a final testimony, with an interlocutor who serves expertly as muse.


  • Gilles Deleuze from A to Z… is a riveting, self-penned obituary of a sickly and self-reflexive philosopher, whose ruminations on bodies, space, art and knowledge constitute both an encyclopedia and an atlas.
