The Pervert's Guide to Cinema is a 2006 documentary directed and produced by Sophie Fiennes, scripted and presented by Slavoj Žižek. It explores a number of films from a psychoanalytic theoretical perspective.

Fiennes and Žižek have completed shooting on a followup, The Pervert's Guide to Ideology.[1] The format is similar, with Žižek speaking from within reconstructed scenes from films.[2]
