  • Zizek is a revolutionary playing a comedian playing a revolutionary. Which makes him worth watching, even in this movie.

  • With an exclamation point suggesting the collegial equivalent of Beatlemania, Zizek! is a movie made by a groupie too enamored of her subject to make a satisfying film about him.

  • Americans might want to approach him first on the printed page rather than the hyperactive Zizek!

  • If you see only one documentary about a Slovene philosopher this year, it will most likely be Astra Taylor's brisk little film Zizek!

    November 17, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Taylor, making her first feature-length documentary, has the wits to capture the taut mind and disheveled lifestyle of a very funny man.

Audience Reviews for Zizek!

  • May 24, 2007
    [font=Century Gothic]"Zizek!" is a mildly interesting documentary that follows Slavoj Zizek, a political philosopher, as he gives talks in New York, Boston, Argentina and his native turf of Slovenia where he holds down a day job as a university lecturer. His talks combine the theories of Karl Marx and Lancanian psychology into a vibrant attack on capitalism.(An attempt is made to explain some of his theories, giving a partial introduction to his writings in the process, but I wish it had been simple enough for a layman to understand. And admittedly, I'm lost when it comes to understanding psychology.) His appeal comes from an extraordinary ability to have complex theories simply roll off the tongue. Also, unlike the stereotypical philosopher, he is not the shy type, instead willing to jump into the fray on occasion. However, he does not enjoy the fame that has come along with his notoriety. A more detailed personal history would have helped in understanding him better. And some of the tangents are simply irrelevent.(For example, instead of Zizek roaming the aisles of Mondo Kim's, I would have preferred him to talk about movies instead. But that's a different film...)[/font]
