Sophie Fiennes has wrapped shooting The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology, her new feature documentary collaboration with philosopher Slavoj Zizek, who has been called both “the closest thing philosophy has to a superstar” and “the undisputed spritz master of cinema studies.” The pair worked together on The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema (2006), which Variety called "a virtuoso marriage of image and thought."

Ideology explores some heady stuff, using psychoanalysis and cinema to explore the mechanisms that shape what we believe and how we behave.

Fiennes’ latest, Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow, played at Cannes 2010.

A UK-Ireland co-production of P Guide Productions and Blinder Films, Ideology was financed by the BFI Film Fund, Film4, Channel 4 and the Irish Film Board and new UK equity company Rooks Nest Entertainment, with its development funds coming from the UK Film Council funded the development. Fiennes produced with James Wilson, Martin Rosebaum and Katie Holly.

    I know Zizek primarily as the author of "Why Heidegger Made the Right Step in 1933," which presents his view that "the problem with Hitler was that he was not violent enough."

    Are you familiar with his concept of violence. With Violence he does not mean simple physical aggression, this is always a sign of impotence, of the impossibility to be violent.
    You should at least listen to a full speech or watch the full movie before you judge him.
