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 consultant : Pascal Bonitzer ou Serge Toubiana, Michel Ciment ou Gilles Tilberghien, et surtout Jacinto Lageira (connaissant intimement les cultures latines).

Malgré une strong point tendance à l. a. théorisation nourrie des affects 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 l. a. linguistique, à los angeles théorie des jeux, à l'éthologie, ou encore à los angeles 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 l. a. 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, l. a. musique (45), los angeles couleur et le noir-et-blanc (30). Ainsi, "chaque picture devient un dispositif différent où l'on ne tient pas compte du problème de raccord". Le cinéaste, loin de l. a. culture chilienne, s'affirme pour l. a. théorie simultanéiste et contre l. a. 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 l. a. rencontre avec Proust, comme il s'en explique à l. a. fin de cet ouvrage, contemporain de l. a. sortie du Temps retrouvé.
