The Art of the Ridiculous Sublime: On David Lynch's Lost Highway

Slavoj Zizek

Publisher: University of Washington PressFormat: Paperback

“The Art of the Ridiculous Sublime” is first of all the detailed reading of David Lynch's “Lost Highway”, based on the premises of Lacanian psychoanalysis. Lynch's unique universe of the 'ridiculous sublime' is interpreted as a simultaneous playful staging and traversing of the fundamental ideological fantasies that sustain our late capitalist society. A master of reversals, Zizek invites the reader to re-examine with him easy assumptions, received opinion, and current critical trends, as well as pose tough questions about the ways in which we understand our world and culture. He offers provocative readings of “Casablanca”, “Schindler's List”, and “Life Is Beautiful” in the process of examining topics as diverse - and as closely linked - as ethics, politics, and cyberspace. Slavoj Zizek is senior researcher in the Department of Philosophy, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. He is the author of more than 70 books including 11 in English.
