Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

My Letterboxd review of The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology

Reblogged from my Letterboxd list:

Whether Slavoj Žižek is right or wrong isn’t the point (he’s a philosopher; being wrong about things just makes the whole thing more interesting). The point is that he’s so enthusiastic and entertaining and honest about what he’s arguing and where he’s coming from. That he can see through the often bullshit divisions of culture into ‘high’ and ‘low’ is a bonus, in this only slightly lesser sequel to his immensely rewarding Pervert’s Guide to Cinema. (Pervert in this case meaning to pervert received wisdom or the canonical order of things. Although…)
