He speaks the truth much of the time, yet all the whipping back of the curtain ends up covering up other realities about movies and life.

There are those who find iek a delight; but well before the two-hour mark, one feels he has delighted us long enough.

Slavoj Zizek psychoanalyses cinema and society in this engaging, interesting and spirited documentary.

In essence, the film is a lecture, but Zizek's associative thinking and understanding of the applicability of psychoanalysis makes it a lecture like no other.

Pay proper attention and it becomes clear that, for all the oddness of his delivery, Zizek makes a great deal of sense.

It's exhilarating, even exhausting stuff, though Fiennes lightens the weight of iek's dense discourse with a welcome scattering of sight gags.

One leaves The Pervert's Guide to Ideology with a lingering sense that this is how academic essay films should be done in the 21st century.

At 150 minutes, the relentlessness nature of this gabfest may prove too daunting for some. But Fiennes and Zizek ultimately present a giddy and grand dissection of society and just how little we understand it.

Slavoj iek manages to explain some of Lacanian psychoanalysis's most inscrutable notions with disarming clarity and infectious urgency.

Noam Chomsky has denounced Zizek's theories as nonsensical, and of course they are. But they're frequently engaging, entertaining and stimulating.

I'm not sure if the Zizek thoughts are an aid to illuminating the Zizek-chosen movies, or vice versa. But it is rich fun and collectably eccentric.

Though [Zizek's] lecture exceeds two hours, he and director Sophie Fiennes incorporate enough deadpan comedy and clips from famous films to sustain the rhetoric.

The motormouthed Zizek serves up an intellectually provocative psychoanalytical dissection of Hollywood movies.

When not dressing up in hilarious costumes, he advises audiences to become atheists via New Testament Christianity. Is he making this stuff up? I fear so.

Occasionally bonkers but kinda brilliant with it, there's plenty here to thrill cineastes and fanboys alike.

iek's flights of fancy are sometimes brilliant and sometimes implausible, but they are always airborne to some degree.

Zizek doesn't build a cohesive argument;...he just pivots from point to point as though he were reading notes for a paper, not the paper itself.
