Plot Summary: A follow-up to "The Pervert's Guide to Cinema" about cultural theorist superstar Slavoj Zizek. A wildly entertaining romp through the crossroads of cinema and philosophy.

With infectious zeal and a voracious appetite for popular culture, Zizek literally goes inside some truly epochal movies, all the better to explore and expose how they reinforce prevailing ideologies. As the ideology that undergirds our cinematic fantasies is revealed, striking associations emerge: What hidden Catholic teachings lurk at the heart of "The Sound of Music"? What are the fascist political dimensions of "Jaws"? "Taxi Driver," "Zabriskie Point," "The Searchers," "The Dark Knight," "John Carpenter's They Live" ("one of the forgotten masterpieces of the Hollywood Left"), "Titanic," Kinder Eggs, verité news footage, Beethoven's “Ode to Joy” and propaganda epics from Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia all inform Zizek's stimulating, provocative and often hilarious psychoanalytic-cinematic rant.
