Director Astra Taylor follows the charismatic and provocative Slavoj Žižek from Buenos Aires to New York and then on home to Ljubljana and his modest apartment, recording his energetic and provocative psychological observations in lecture halls, restaurants and even in bed. As the New York Times added, while "he is often playful and self-mocking, he is never less than completely serious".
