THE PERVERT’S GUIDE TO IDEOLOGY

DIRECTOR: Sophie Fiennes - GREAT BRITAIN

Following up on his provocative The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, confrontational Slovenian philosopher and film theoretician Slavoj Žižek continues his riveting search for the hidden languages of cinema, exploring the idea of films as collective fantasies that shape our beliefs, practices, and society. Žižek’s high-concept take on what psychoanalysis reveals about ideology is a treat for cineastes seeking profound yet accessible analysis of the classics and is guaranteed to provide fresh perspective. Fiennes captures Žižek (amusingly inserted into scenes from the films he talks about) as he examines a wide range of works (also music, history, and current events) including Robert Wise’s classic epic The Sound of Music, John Carpenter’s alien invasion B-movie They Live, Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket, Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, and dozens more. Little did you know! (134 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Hoover Street Revival (02), The Pervert’s Guide To Cinema (06), Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow (10)
