Žižek! is a feature documentary exploring the eccentric personality and esoteric work of the "wild man of theory": the eminent Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek. Žižek reveals the invisible workings of ideology through his unique blend of Lacanian psychoanalysis, Marxism, and critique of pop culture. Never ceasing to observe the paradoxes that underpin our perception of reality, little goes untheorized over the course of the film, particularly Žižek's recurring themes -- ideology, belief, revolution, and love. Erudite and outrageous, mixing innovative animations with uncensored interviews, Žižek! is both an unforgettable lesson in philosophy and a compelling portrait of an intellectual maverick.
Followed by discussion with Dusan Bjelic, USM Professor of Sociology
