The Pervert’s Guide To Cinema

You’ve got to hand it to Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek. Who else could conceivably get away with saying something like “My gott, I’m tinking like Melahnie. You know what I’m tinking, now? I want to fack Mitch! No, shorry, shorry…I got dish … shpontaneoush confushion of direcshins”?!  Here’s a clip from his psychoanalytical and film criticism foray  into the cinematic canon entitled The Pervert’s Guide To Cinema.

The documentary, which was described in the Times as “an extraordinary reassessment of cinema”, is billed as 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.”  You can download the full torrent here (thanks Dave)
