Perverts and the Examined Life: Philosopher's Guide to Movies

Two new films with philosophical subject matter coming out soon. The first is a documentary, Examined Life, that captures the peripatetic experience with deep thinkers such as Peter Singer, Cornel West, and Judith Butler.

The second film is a project of that philosophical wild man, Slovoj Zizek (who is also interviewed in Examined Life), that analyzes psychoanalytic themes in a variety of American classic films. The Pervert's Guide to Cinema seems worth it just to watch Zizek trying to pilot a small motorboat.
