  • Summary: Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek is one of the most important -- and outrageous -- cultural theorists working today. This captivating, erudite documentary explores the eccentric personality and esoteric work of this incomparable academic and writer. (Zeitgeist Films)

    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.

    The documentary bravely risks giving Zizek its own one-way hug.
  4. 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.

    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.

    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,.... Collapse
