DVD Verdict Contest -- Pop Culture Philosophy

Start: February 24th, 2014
End: March 2nd, 2014

• The Pervert's Guide To Ideology, courtesy Zeitgeist Films
p>One of most prolific and popular intellectuals of our time, Slavoj Zizek, re-teams with acclaimed documentarian Sophie Fiennes for another 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 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, Titanic, and propaganda epics from Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia all inform Zizek's stimulating, provocative and often hilarious psychoanalytic-cinematic rant.

Five lucky winners will be enlightened and educated by THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO IDEOLOGY, courtesy of Zeitgeist Films.
