Critics reviews

I’m almost tempted to say that making me popular is a resistance against taking me serious, says Slavoj Zizek in this entertaining 2005 portrait of the Slovene cultural theorist and academic rock star. It’s a characteristic utterance, and his charisma is such that the meaning registers despite the faulty grammar… [Zizek’s] frenetic and lucid manner is neatly captured by the jazzy style of director Astra Taylor.
