THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA takes the viewer on an exhilarating ride through some of the greatest movies ever made. Serving as presenter and guide is the charismatic Slavoj Zizek, the Slovenian philosopher and psychoanalyst. With his engaging and passionate approach to thinking, Zizek delves into the hidden language of cinema, uncovering what movies can tell us about ourselves. New York Times - Critic's Pick "Zizek's comments [are] so incisive that after watching "The Pervert's Guide to Cinema," you may never see these directors' movies the same way again." Stephen Holden, The New York Times "A virtuoso marriage of image and thought, 'The Pervert's Guide to Cinema' is a propulsive, stream of consciousness sprint through the movie projector mind of Slovenian philosopher and psychoanalyst Slavoj Zizek ... pulled off with wit and assurance by director Sophie Fiennes." Eddie Cockrell, Variety Widely acclaimed as one of the most original thinkers of our time, Slavoj Zizek is a dialectical-materialist philosopher. He is the author of more than fifty books on diverse subjects ranging from opera to religion, film, and the war in Iraq. He has taught at universities including Paris, London, Columbia, Chicago, Duke, Princeton and the New School in New York.
