Critic Reviews for Zizek!
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!
Taylor, making her first feature-length documentary, has the wits to capture the taut mind and disheveled lifestyle of a very funny man.
[Sings] to the smug choir of post-structuralist academia, who have so few movies made for their matinee satisfaction.
Audience Reviews for Zizek!
There aren't enough adjectives to describe Zizek. But one will suffice to describe this documentary: BRILLIANT!
Incredible! Slavoj Zizek is one of the most charismatic and brilliant minds of our generation. I was absolutely enthralled by his ideas and his eccentric, relatively crazy personality. I now must read his entire catalog:) SEE THIS!!
How do I talk about a documentary about an academic rockstar made by someone who seems so completely enamored by her subject but yet can't engage him in a single meaningful question?? Does she even understand him. The film is without direction or purpose...just hero-worshiping. That said, he is entertaining enough but a philosopher so well-known and influencial seems to warrant a more serious and challenging documentary. This ain't it.
