The philosopher Slavoj Žižek is a world-class connoisseur of cinema. In The  
Pervert's Guide to Ideology  he teams with director Sophie Fiennes to riff on  
film clips for their ideological implications both overt and hidden. His  
eclectic associations encompass The Searchers, Jaws, Triumph of the Will,  
Titanic, M*A*S*H, Loves of a Blonde and Brazil as he clicks through  
capitalism, fascism, consumerism, Stalinism, religion and more. The  
experience is like being inside an intellectual pinball machine, setting off  
lights in your brain.
Part of our continuing film series collaboration with the USM Philosophy  
Symposium. Followed by discussion with Jason Read, USM Professor of  
Philosophy.
