130 minutes
2012
Velká Británie / Ireland Documentary

The philosopher Slavoj Žižek is a world-class connoisseur of cinema. Here he teams with director Sophie Fiennes to riff on film clips for their ideological implications both overt and hidden. His eclectic associations encompass The Searchers, Jaws, Triumph of the Will, Titanic, M*A*S*H, Loves of a Blonde, and Brazil as he clicks through capitalism, fascism, consumerism, Stalinism, religion and more. The experience is like being inside an intellectual pinball machine, setting off lights in your brain. Toronto International Film Festival 2012
