"[Slovenia has a] reputation disproportionately large for its size due to the work of Slavoj Zizek."—The New Yorker. Zizek! is a fascinating portrait of Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek, one of the most important--and outrageous--cultural theorists today. Called by some "the Elvis of cultural theory," Zizek is the author of works on subjects as wide-ranging as Alfred Hitchcock, 9/11, Christianity, and Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis. Incredibly, he was a candidate for, and nearly won, the Presidency of his native Slovenia in the first democratic elections after the breakup of Yugoslavia in 1990. (71 mins.)
