The Pervert's Guide to CinemaDVD - 2006 | Widescreen format
"A film about cinema itself, with close readings of some of the most intriguing and celebrated films in cinema history. Serving as guide is the charismatic Slovenian philosopher and psychoanalyst Slavoj Žižek, who delves into the hidden language of cinema, uncovering what movies can tell us about ourselves. Structured in three parts, the Pervert's Guide To Cinema offers an introduction to Žižek's ideas on fantasy, reality, sexuality, subjectivity, form and desire. In a striking visual leap, director Sophie Fiennes immerses Žižek into the scenes he discusses. Whether he is unraveling the films of David Lynch, or overturning everything you thought you knew about Hitchcock, Žižek illuminates the screen with his passion, intellect and unfailing sense of humour"--Container.
