By Raul Ruiz

Expérimentateur insatiable, Raoul Ruiz, avec une filmographie de plus de cent courts, moyens et longs métrages documentaires ou de fiction en moins de forty ans s'affirme, au fil de ses nombreux écrits et entretiens, comme un théoricien. En 1995, Poétique du cinéma (Ed. Dis Voir) exposait les principales modalités d'une mise en scène cinématographique essentiellement anti-bazinienne et sa "Théorie du conflit central", soulignant les oppositions entre linéaire et simultané, unicité et pluralité, continuité / discontinuité. Les quatre entretiens accordés entre 1983 et 1999 (des Trois couronnes du matelot au Temps retrouvé), regroupés pour ce nouveau recueil de los angeles assortment "Arts & esthétique", complètent et plongent le lecteur au cœoeur de los angeles réflexion ruizienne, mais en lui offrant un advisor : Pascal Bonitzer ou Serge Toubiana, Michel Ciment ou Gilles Tilberghien, et surtout Jacinto Lageira (connaissant intimement les cultures latines).

Malgré une uniqueness tendance à los angeles théorisation nourrie des impacts les plus diverses (et de références, pour l'image en tout cas, bien digérées - Bazin, Deleuze, Schefer, Klossowski entre autres), Ruiz "n'apparaît pas comme un formaliste dont les schémas et les processus esthétiques, empruntés entre autres aux sciences physiques, à los angeles linguistique, à los angeles théorie des jeux, à l'éthologie, ou encore à l. a. politique ou au roman-photo, seraient aveuglément applicables à toutes events ou fictions cinématographiques (p. 12)".

Outre les inévitables digressions et ruptures de ton chères à los angeles rhétorique ruizienne, le cinéaste trouve tout son intérêt lorsqu'il commente ses diverses expérimentations sur les paramètres cinématographiques : temps et espace faisant jouer l. a. lumière (17, 50), le montage (25, 38, forty three, 52), le cadre (43), le mouvement, los angeles musique (45), l. a. couleur et le noir-et-blanc (30). Ainsi, "chaque photo devient un dispositif différent où l'on ne tient pas compte du problème de raccord". Le cinéaste, loin de los angeles culture chilienne, s'affirme pour l. a. théorie simultanéiste et contre los angeles théorie linéaire héritée d'Aristote, pour le simulacre, les exercices de kind gratuits, les effets décoratifs devenus nécessaires puisqu'ils sont le sujet même du movie, et contre Bazin. Une recherche incessante, los angeles déstabilisation éclatés appelaient depuis longtemps déjà los angeles rencontre avec Proust, comme il s'en explique à l. a. fin de cet ouvrage, contemporain de los angeles sortie du Temps retrouvé.
