Synopsis

"Cinema is the ultimate pervert art. It doesn't give you what you desire. It tells you how to desire," says Slavoj Zizek. It turns out that the world-renowned philosopher and psychoanalyst is also a great film lover. In this three-part documentary, Zizek combines these areas of expertise by supplying his provocative analysis to a treasure trove of clips by his favorite directors, including Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, Andrei Tarkovsky, Charlie Chaplin and many others.
