British female director Sofia Finis directed the documentary "Guide to Perverted Movies" and "Guide to Perverted Ideology" carefully crafted by Slavoj Žižek, showing a lonely will to seek defeat, which is also a kind of Forget my dedication. Only when you really sink your heart to do one thing, can people appear to have no desires or desires.

When Zizek traveled through Hitchcock's films to Chaplin's world, when "Snooper" encountered "Alien", the so-called pervert was just an empty pawn in Freud's theory, or an anti-Fraud Ide did it, and Freud became a Band-Aid for the neurotic. Lacan's psychoanalytic theory and Marxist philosophy are just the "insights" in the mouth of this academic star. Those classic images have become the triggers he pulls at will, and hit wherever he wants. Even if he doesn't have a crosshair, he has to admit his unusually excited and eccentric general ability.

When a person studies something with sincerity, the chance of inspiration will be greatly increased. Zizek's perseverance can be seen from the exploration of these two works. It is one of the reasons why I am so interested in this film that I have spared no effort to deduce it and then have a sense of enlightenment. I just feel that Zizek inevitably has a kind of candid feeling about the film, which is too superficial, or can't touch the essence of the film, but it is better to talk about himself than to repeat what others say.

Here, the "pervert" is just an excuse for Zizek's anti-tradition, and more of a format that he takes for granted. What's more, the perverts mentioned by Žižek have transcended the general concept of individual we understand, and once mixed with ideology, such images are destined to be twisted into a mess. of loss. The perverts who stir up the wind are often a bit irrelevant to the movies mentioned, or it may be a trap created by Zizek.

It is destined that a scholar like Zizek cannot become a martyr, and he is just wandering around to join in the fun. It's not a bad thing to have one more perspective for analyzing the movie, let me look at it in detail later. A rough reading is just an unrefined rough stone. It takes more time to touch it carefully, which is closer to the essence of these two films. Otherwise, it is no different from a blind person touching an elephant.

    Slavoj Zizek: In order to understand today's world, we need cinema, literally. It's only in cinema that we get that crucial dimension which we are not ready to confront in our reality. If you are looking for what is in reality more real that reality itself, look into the cinematic fiction.

    Slavoj Zizek: Cinema is the art of appearances, it tells us something about reality itself. It tells us something about how reality constitutes itself.
