The Pervert's Guide to Ideology
The Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek did The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema in 2006. Now he and director Sophie Fiennes return with The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology. This time he uses his critique of film to try and show us why we might not be as free as we believe. “It’s something so hilariously carnival like in the way Zizek turns accustomed ideas and concepts upside down, and the arguments are worth consideration even when they skate on crackling thin ice […]. And above all else, it never gets boring. For anyone interested in films, The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology is a grand combination of tricky food for thought, eye openers, humor and film history”, writes Mattias Oscarsson in Sydsvenskan and gives the film the highest rating.
