    Zizek as a larger-than-life figure who manages to engage you even when you're not entirely sure what he's going on about.
  2. The film attempts to put Zizek's philosophy into practical, accessible terms. Accessible, of course, being a relative term.
  3. Reviewed by: James Westcott
    The documentary bravely risks giving Zizek its own one-way hug.
  4. 60
    It's a straightforward, relatively style-free piece, primarily of interest to those who want to hear Zizek's pronouncements. But what distinguishes the film is Zizek's peculiar self-awareness, which borders on paranoia

    Zizek is a revolutionary playing a comedian playing a revolutionary. Which makes him worth watching, even in this movie.
  6. Taylor traipses around after Zizek on a continent-hopping lecture tour, and we get a face full of the man's tireless analysis, in a style that can only be characterized as hyperactive grizzly bear, complete with spit-spewing speech impediment.
  7. Entertaining without being especially illuminating. If you must see only one documentary about a Slovene philosopher this year, it might be better to read his books.
  8. Reviewed by: Eddie Cockrell
    A little bit of Slovene philosopher Slavoj Zizek goes a long way. In the verbose profile documentary Zizek! there's a lot of esoteric, eccentric theories, and little context within his globetrotting life.

    Well i might be partial here - i am Slovenien and quite fascinated at Zizek, who without being partial, is one of most intelegent human beings on earth. Just because we can't get him,.... Full Review »
