Slavoj Zizek is a phenomenon. This popular and untiring Slovenian sociologist, philosopher and culture critic has a great influence on contemporary political and cultural debate with his publications and lectures on themes including fundamentalism, globalisation, human rights, cyberspace, post-modernism and multi-culturalism. His landmark study «Looking Awry: An Introduction to Lacan through Popular Culture» was, in a sense, a forerunner to this highly Lacanian look at popular cinema. Film maker Sophie Fiennes had the idea of putting Zizek into replicas of the sets of several famous feature films. In these sets, with infectious enthusiasm, Zizek displays his insights on the intricacies of Lacan's ideas about the relationship between the Imaginary, the Real and the Symbolic, specifically with regards to cinema. Expect to see some of the most iconic films in history from Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo to George Lucas's Star Wars dazzlingly deconstructed and reconstructed. Zizek presents his arguments so convincingly that the viewer's head is left spinning. (Erwin van't Hart)
