ZIZEK! The Movie

ZIZEK! (the movie) will be released very soon. I saw the trailer today. "Elvis of cultural theory," he is named. Seems to be a quite a character, doesn't he?
- For watching the trailer click here. For watching a section of the movie click here.
- Read about the director, Astra Taylor, here.
- My other post about Zizek and his opinion about Iranian nuclear program.

Grizzly Man

Watching Grizzly Man is shocking. It is a visual description of what Herzog previously has described in his "Minnesota Declaration":
10. The moon is dull. Mother Nature doesn´t call, doesn´t speak to you, although a glacier eventually farts. And don´t you listen to the Song of Life.

11. We ought to be grateful that the Universe out there knows no smile.

12. Life in the oceans must be sheer hell. A vast, merciless hell of permanent and immediate danger. So much of a hell that during evolution some species - including man - crawled, fled onto some small continents of solid land, where the Lessons of Darkness continue.

- "Minnesota Declaration" can be found at Werner Herzog's website.
- What reminded me of Herzog's "declaration" was CK's comment on the movie.
