کتاب دیگری از فیلسوف و منتقد مشهور اسلاوی ژیژک که اگر اشتباه نکنم متن یکی از سلسله سخنرانی های وی است.اسلاوی ژیژک از اون فیلم بین های بسیار ماهر است و کتاب ها و مقالاتی درباره هیچکاک و لینچ و... نوشته است.دراین کتاب به بررسی تکنیک هایی در سینما و فلسفه سینما می پردازد و این تکنیک ها رادر نهایت در فیلم های کیشلوفسکی مورد بررسی قرار می دهد.همچنین از دیدگاهی نو به بررسی فیلم های کیشلوفسکی می پردازد.این کتاب ارجاعات بسیار زیادی به فیلم های دوره های مختلف تاریخ سینما دارد.
