It's not often that a philosopher and cultural critic gains something resembling celebrity status, but then again, there are few philosophers and cultural critics as magnetic as Slavoj Žižek. He has certainly transcended academic borders and his infectious personality played a bit part in the success of "The Pervert's Guide to Cinema," his 2006 outing with documentary filmmaker Sophie Fiennes, that investigated the very language of cinema itself. And now they've teamed up to tackle cinema once more time from a different angle.

The Pervert's Guide To Ideology

It's not often that a philosopher and cultural critic gains something resembling celebrity status, but then again, there are few philosophers and cultural critics as magnetic as Slavoj Žižek. He has certainly transcended academic borders and his infectious personality played a bit part in the success of "The Pervert's Guide to Cinema," his 2006 outing with documentary filmmaker Sophie Fiennes, that investigated the very language of cinema itself. And now they've teamed up to tackle cinema once more time from a different angle.

"The Pervert's Guide To Ideology," as the title suggets, finds Zizek exploring how films reinforce prevailing ideologies, and where cinema and philosophy intersect. We've got the exclusive, eye-catching new poster for the film below, and it comes from noted designer Akiko Stehrenberger. She is a Clio Award winning artist whose memorable film artwork includes Michael Haneke’s U.S. remake of "Funny Games," the illustrated one sheet for Xan Cassavetes' "Kiss of the Damned," "Casa de mi Padre" and Todd Solondz's "Life During Wartime."

But before you check out the poster, here's the trailer for "The Pervert's Guide To Ideology" which nicely introduces how the doc navigates the cross-study of cinema and academia. 'Ideology' will be distributed by Zeitgeist Films and opens on November 1st at the IFC Center in New York, hitting more cities in the following weeks. And you can purchase the poster at Posteritati in New York City.
