Until some ballsy distributor decides to wage a “fair use” battle against studio copyright holders, it may be that the Sophie Fiennes doc The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, in which the Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek discourses about film, politics, desire and theory, will be little seen in the U.S. So, I’m going to point you towards YouTube, which has several clips from the film, which was hit in Toronto this year, streaming through its servers.

Here is Zizek talking about Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation and Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds.
