Format: DVD
This film is wonderful. It attempts to show us the tinted spectacles we are viewing the world through without knowing it. I found it very stimulating and full of penetrating insights. Although in the form of a lecture, it is never boring as it uses witty changes of scenery and extensive use of film clips from the world of cinema. Some are classic which films everyone will have seen but the author shows us how to read them differently (eg. "The Sound of Music"); others are little-known, or forgotten, gems which you will want to look up and see afterwards. There are some clips of shocking propaganda films which everyone should see although they are difficult to watch such a Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda. I saw this at the cinema and quite literally sat forward in my seat the whole time trying to follow every word. I intend to buy a DVD copy to study it again at leisure. Well worth buying. Highly recommended.

This series (Perverts Guide To..) takes a humorous and quirky approach to academic study. It is a great way to get older teenagers interested as it is funny and perceptive and tends to make complex ideas accessible

Format: DVD
As, inter alia, a philosopher, I was naturally interested in this film, presented as it is by someone also so describing himself. Many of the ideas -largely borrowed from left theory of the last sixty years or so - are gripping and persuasive. The disastrous element of the film is that some things, including complex ideas, do not lend themselves to presentation as clever soundbites, and it is this simplification which leads to distortion and indeed absurdity. Secondly, some of the ideas themselves - such as that Catholicism is not 'really' anti-sex, anti-pleasure, homophobic and sexist but secretly, as it were, blesses and encourages the sensual hedonist - are simply irresponsible drivel, having no evidence to support them. Indeed, the whole film is a series of assumptions which would have benefited from the adducing of evidence rather than the display of so-called examples.

Essentially a Marxist Criticism of Hollywood, Slavoj Zizek has some interesting observations on famous Hollywood movies. But some of the movies he reviews are so obviously flim-flam light entertainment ie Sound Of Music!?, that the horse has long bolted! I couldn't get all his ideas (the Last Temptation of Christ has an underlying atheistic message?!) but it's great to watch something that requires a little thought.

This film allows you to read between the lines of movies and gives you a deep insight into the ideologies behind past and recent motion pictures. Perfect for a film student!
