Slavoj Zizek – The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema

Link to imdb.

Interesting film where Zizek uses examples from films to explain aspects of psychoanalysis. He explains the importance of fantasy when negotiating reality. Without the illusion we lose our coordinates. Fantasy is the psychological truth of ourselves, whereas actual ‘reality’ is void and brutally meaningless, a void which stares back at us.

Anxiety is the only emotion which doesn’t deceive us. No one can properly articulate their desires. Disintegration of the material leads to spiritual.
