Earlier this week a friend introduced me to Slavoj Žižek - and specifically, he referenced The Perverts Guide To Cinema. I started watching and suddenly realized that it was over 2 1/2 hours long. I saved to ‘watch later’! Seriously - watch the first 5 to 10 minutes - you can’t just stop and never return … BUT … life does have a limited duration!
I commented on this to my friend … he responded …
I had no idea it was that long! There is not enough alcohol in New Zealand to get you (let alone two of you) through 2.5 hours. This six-minute piece is more than enough to convey Zizek’s characteristic mannerisms (mental and physical). And he neatly endorses the critique of “the fetishism of action” by reversing Marx’s 11th thesis on Feuerbach: “In the 20th-century we tried to change the world too quickly, it’s time to go back to interpreting it.” Big Think
I haven’t watched it yet … still trying to understand my friend’s reply 😂
