Director Sophie Fiennes reunites with Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek for a second documentary (after 2006’s The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema). Dissecting clips from iconic films, from The Sound of Music to Taxi Driver, the eccentric academic explores how cinema can reinforce or expose the ideologies of contemporary and historic events.
“A riveting and often hilarious demonstration of the slovenian philosopher’s uncanny ability to turn movies inside out.” The Hollywood Reporter
