Documentary

Synopsis

The philosopher and academic Slavoj Žižek is either a genius, madman, contrarian, clown, sensationalist, radical leftist, scourge of liberals, or all the above. Uniting with documentarian Sophie Fiennes, Žižek examines films, both famous and obscure, for their overt and hidden implications.

Our take

In film studies, Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek is a controversial rock star: few scholars are as colorful, provocative, and entertaining, and this guided tour through cinema, from Nazi propaganda to The Sound of Music to They Live, is a delight for film buffs. Bonus: music by Brian Eno!
