Philosiphical movies are not the easiest to watch, but THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO IDEOLOGY is full of meaningful insights and very stimulating. It achieves to keep the audience interested and never bored by using a large palette of sceneries and short film clips, from classics but also forgotten little gems. Zizek makes use of his encyclopedic knowledge of cinema and extracts some points to illustrate his theories. His strategy is effective, as they become instantly relevant and relatable. Of course, he is touching a sensitive point, as usual when it comes to philosophy and theories: there is also plenty to disagree throughout the film and it is what keeps you in front of the screen until the end. Highly recommended for cinema history lovers and philosophers.
