Marvellous. The man's a genius. I had absolutely no idea who Zizek was before a friend told me to get on the case. I was sucked in within minutes of watching Fiennes' wistfully directed set pieces which complemented Zizek's use of cinema to explain, ultimately, that fiction is reality and vice versa! Using philosophy (I'm not sure what), Freudian psychoanalysis and, most importantly, a passion for film, Zizek provides a celluloid vista to show that the image projected on the screen is merely a reflection of our desires, fantasies and delusions. There is no difference between the screen character and the viewer: both are immersed in a perception of reality that may or may not be real (i.e. all experience is subjective). Zizek populates his discourse with scenes from numerous movies. Hitchcock and Lynch films predominate but there are many other classics to enjoy. And each time Zizek discusses a scene from a film, the viewer is treated to a reconstruction of the scene's location with Zizek strategically positioned in some part thereof. Zizek himself is a wonderful person; he exudes warmth, is often hilarious, has a profound understanding of the human condition and provides, for me at least, a very accessible insight into the `strangeness' of the mind. For instance, Zizek playfully uses the Marx brothers to elegantly explain the Freudian concept of the super-ego (Groucho), ego (Chico) and the id (Harpo). My favourite bits (and there are many) involve Zizek talking about tulips, Zizek under the Golden Gate Bridge and the scene where he's sitting on a lavatory whilst discussing voyeurism.
