Editorial Reviews

United Kingdom released, NTSC/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), English ( Subtitles ), French ( Subtitles ), German ( Subtitles ), Japanese ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA takes the viewer on an exhilarating ride through some of the greatest movies ever made. Serving as presenter and guide is the charismatic Slavoj Zizek, acclaimed philosopher and psychoanalyst. With his engaging and passionate approach to thinking, Zizek delves into the hidden language of cinema, uncovering what movies can tell us about ourselves. 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. THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA cuts its cloth from the very world of the movies it discusses; by shooting at original locations and from replica sets it creates the uncanny illusion that Zizek is speaking from 'within' the films themselves. Together the three parts construct a compelling dialectic of ideas. Described by The Times in London as 'the woman helming this Freudian inquest,' director Sophie Fiennes' collaboration with Slavoj Zizek illustrates the immediacy with which film and television can communicate complex ideas. Says Zizek: 'My big obsession is to make things clear. I can really explain a line of thought if I can somehow illustrate it in a scene from a film. THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA is really about what psychoanalysis can tell us about cinema.' SCREENED/AWARDED AT: British Independent Film Awards, ...The Pervert's Guide to Cinema ( The Pervert's Guide to Cinema Parts 1, 2, 3 ) ( The Pervert's Guide to Cinema Parts One, Two, Three )

You get a lot of bang for your buck with The Pervert's Guide to Cinema, and it's guaranteed to blow your mind. Three 50 minute sections direct from the whirling mind of the ever-clever Slavoj Zizek, brilliantly illustrated by Sophie Fiennes. It's hard to overpraise this film - it completely changes the way you watch movies. Like the New York Times said: "The clips from Hitchcock and Lynch films are so numerous and Mr. Zizek's comments so incisive that after watching "The Pervert's Guide to Cinema," you may never see these directors' movies the same way again."
I've watched this film over and over - it's better than any Film 101 class at university.

How surprising that this has not done better than it has. Divided into three parts, each building on the preceding but reaching an even deeper level of analysis than its predecessor. Here, Slavoj Zizek applies Freudian ideas to great effect--illustrating his points with vignettes taken from a well-known films. Particularly engaging, is how he applies Freud's ideas about dreams to films, revealing them in ways that will forever change how you see them and, really, any movie you might later see. While it is hard to describe, this documentary in which Zizek gesticulating appears frequently, remains remarkably graphic in its illustrations. Where even the texture of things takes on a whole new meaning.

It is expensive when you realize that the 3 parts come in one DVD, but after all it's worth every penny. Slavoj Zizek books are great, and this movie by Sophie Fiennes with him as the main voice, is as great, insightful and funny as the books.

This is an astounding, hilarious whirling deep dive into the the cinematic superego, ego and id. I've not seen anything like it. It's as if Freud and Jung were whispering in Slavoj Zizek's ear. If this all sounds a little "too deep", be assured that it is very accessible and just hilarious. Watch this before you see another movie. Especially Hitchcock. Be sure to turn on the subtitles, because there are none within the movie itself.

Wow. If you like it when the construct below the plot is revealed, you will enjoy this. He focuses on psychology and hits a lot of big movies, I only wish it were longer.

the cinema is the ultimate pervert art, says slavoj zizek, the brilliant left wing provocateur. dublé of philosopher and psychoanalist, the slovenian zizek tries to bring back the art of interpretation focusing in the levels cinema moves our desire. a film, as any work-of-art, do not tells us what to desire but how we desire; as zizek says, desire is not natural in us: we must be taught to desire. To do this, sofhie fiennes puts zizek inside the movies as a endogetic comentator of the films, which are read by a freudian/lacanian perspective. after viewing this film (or films, because there are 3 parts) we all shall have the desire to see the many films zizek talks about during this doc. it is the minimum desire we should have after seeing it...
