THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO IDEOLOGY, November 15 21, Directed by: Sophie Fiennes, Documentary, 136 min, UK/Ireland
Directed by: Sophie Fiennes, Documentary,
136 min, UK/Ireland

Sophie Fiennes follows up The Pervert's Guide to Cinema with this equally playful and stimulating documentary, in which bearded, blustering Eastern European academic Slavoj Zizek holds forth on the ideological subtexts to movies from The Triumph of the Will to West Side Story.

Cultural theorist superstar Slavoj Žižek re-teams with director Sophie Fiennes (The Pervert's Guide to Cinema) for another wildly entertaining romp through the crossroads of cinema and philosophy. With infectious zeal and a voracious appetite for popular culture, Žižek literally goes inside nside some truly epochal movies, all the better to explore and expose how they reinforce prevailing ideologies. As the ideology that undergirds our cinematic fantasies is revealed, striking associations emerge: What hidden Catholic teachings lurk at the heart of The Sound of Music? What are the fascist political dimensions of Jaws? Taxi Driver, Zabriskie Point, The Searchers, The Dark Knight, John Carpenter's They Live ("one of the forgotten masterpieces of the Hollywood Left"), Titanic, Kinder Eggs, verité news footage, Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" and propaganda epics from Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia all inform Žižek's stimulating, provocative and often hilarious psychoanalytic-cinematic rant
