The Pervert's Guide to Ideology is a 2012 British documentary film directed by Sophie Fiennes and written and presented by Slovene philosopher and psychoanalyst Slavoj Žižek. It is a sequel to Fiennes's 2006 documentary The Pervert's Guide to Cinema. Though the film follows the frameworks of its predecessor, this time the emphasis is more on ideology itself. Through psychoanalysis Zizek explores "the mechanisms that shape what we believe and how we behave". Among the films that are explored are Full Metal Jacket, Taxi Driver etc. The film is being released in the United States by Zeitgeist Films starting November, 2013.
