Enjoy Your Symptom!: Jacques Lacan in Hollywood and Out
Psychology Press, 2001 - Performing Arts - 238 pages
Slavoj Zizek, dubbed by the Village Voice the giant of Ljubljana, is back with a new edition of his seriously entertaining book on film, psychoanalysis (and life). His inimitable blend of philosophical and social theory, Lacanian analysis, and outrageous humor are made to show how Hollywood movies can explain psychoanalysis-and vice versa using films such as Marnie and The Man Who Knew TooMuch.
