Susan Sontag's essay work is based on the tension and critical discussion between Aesthetics, Culture, Morals and Politics. It is from this regard that she makes use of various objects, disciplines and theories from which her thinking is built. Cinema is one of these elements, working in the form of cinephilia as a “specific kind of love that cinema inspired”, and as a political device giving an account of the decadence of cinema, but also of its cultural and historical density. In this respect, this article does a bibliographical review of Susan Sontag's essay work about cinema and cinephilia. From then on, this article seeks to articulate a reflection about cinema as a writing and critical and theoretical device.
