On rencontre souvent l. a. inspiration d’ « écart » chez Rancière, toujours soucieux de « faire du deux avec de l’un ». Appliqué au cinéma, l’écart porte aussi bien sur l. a. nature de los angeles cinéphilie, qui lie le culte de l’art et los angeles démocratie des divertissements, sur le rapport compliqué entre cinéma et politique, ou encore sur l’unité même de cet artwork, forme d’émotion ou imaginative and prescient du monde. Peut-être faut-il se demander « si le cinéma n’existe pas justement sous los angeles forme de ce système d’écarts irréductibles entre des choses qui portent le même nom sans être des membres d’un même corps ».
C’est à partir de questions de cet ordre que Rancière convoque Bresson, Straub et Huillet, Pedro Costa, mais aussi Minelli et Hitchcock. Les movies dont il parle, il ne les raconte pas, il ne les commente pas non plus comme ferait un journaliste - il montre ce que, sans lui, nous ne verrions sans doute pas, comme par exemple le rôle des flammes et de l. a. fumée chez Minelli : « Feux d’artifice de Meet me in Saint Louis, flammes imaginaires au sein desquelles Manuela voit l’acteur Serafin métamorphosé en Macoco le pirate (Le Pirate), flammes « réelles » d’une voiture allemande que l. a. Résistance fait exploser, feu de cheminée dans l’hacienda du vieux Madariagga ou foudre conjuguée de l’orage et de l’apocalypse sur le patriarche abattu (Les Quatre cavaliers de l’Apocalypse). »
