Slavoj Žižek, everyone’s favorite Slovenian cultural theorist, stars in The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, two and a half hours of psychoanalysis applied to the likes of Blue Velvet and The Matrix. It sounds completely mad, but it hangs together because of the brilliant, hilarious decision to insert the garrulous philosopher into key scenes of the films he discusses.
