The Pervert's Guide to Cinema - Slavoj Žižek
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.
The Pervert's Guide offers an introduction into some of Zizek's most exciting ideas on fantasy, reality, sexuality, subjectivity, desire, materiality and cinematic form. Whether he is untangling the famously baffling films of David Lynch, or overturning everything you thought you knew about Hitchcock, Zizek illuminates the screen with his passion, intellect, and unfailing sense of humour. The Pervert's Guide applies Zizek's ideas to the cinematic canon, in what The Times calls 'an extraordinary reassessment of cinema.
