Link to Documentaries
I've added another link to a user with complete documentaries on youtube. One of these is The Pervert's Guide to the Cinema (Sophie Fiennes, 2006), a great film exploring cinema through Lacanian psychoanalysis. It is narrated by the philosopher Slavoj Zizek and distills many of the ideas discussed in his various books, most notably Looking Awry: An Introduction to Jacques Lacan Through Popular Culture (1991). I just re-read Looking Awry after many years and I think it remains a fascinating read and about as accessible as Lacan can get.
