Watch The Pervert's Guide to Ideology
- 2 hr 16 min
This 2013 documentary and sequel to The Pervet's Guide to Cinema, was directed by Sophie Fiennes and presented by internationally renowned philospher and writer, Slavoj Zizek. The main topics which the film covers include primarily, films and their influence on culture but also ideology itself, where it comes from, how it shapes human beings as individuals and as cultures and societies. Several prominent films are discussed at great length in the documentary, including Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, Scorcese's Taxi Driver and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight and Spielberg's creature feature thriller, Jaws. Also, aside from just the main points of the films, Zizek also discusses their background and the political and ideological stew in which they were created.
