Did You Know?

Quotes:
Slavoj Zizek:[speaking about his picture in the newspaper] If you were to have a daughter, would you allow this guy to take your daughter to cinema? Be honest, the answer is 'no'. I hate the way I appear... in some documents it's even worse. It's really as a kind of a criminal that I appear you know.See more »

Zizek! The subject proves to be smarter than it author., 4 April 2007
Author: marcel37-1 from United States

A good introduction into Zizek as a thinker and as a personality, but the film goes along with Zizek, posing no challenge to its subject. It seems pretty obvious that Zizek has been an object of fetish by the west, using cinema and pop culture as the sugar with which he gives people his medicine. From my expeirence on US capmuses, this makes a lot of American hipsters feel smart when they pick up one of his good books.

Though not completely fluff piece - and who is Zizek to deny taking advantage of it - it would have been better if the filmmaker took the Zizek beast on with more than a humble adoration of his current cool factor.
