You will never understand the shit that philosopher Slavoj Zizek
is on. But after a few minutes of watching this documentary by Astra Taylor, you'll completely understand why he's famous and has so many admirers all over the world. Zizek is a very funny man
. He knows how to crack up his audiences and the few readers who can penetrate his difficult books. Most philosophers laugh with their minds; Zizek laughs with his belly
