"i'm sure we don't carry anything like that here, but i can double check if you like" 

- a woman at the MoMA store

get your panties out of a bunch lady,
i was just looking for this:

...an exuberant romp through the popular field of dreams known as cinema with Slavoj Zizek, the irrepressible Slovenian psychoanalyst and philosopher. Zizek not only presents clips from films by Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, and the Marx Brothers, to name a few, but makes his points by inserting himself into some of the films. Originally a three-part Channel 4/More 4 documentary, Fiennes's exhilarating exegesis on the constant interplay between the unconscious mind and the movies is about "the ultimate pervert art. It doesn't give you what you desire—it tells you how to desire" (Zizek).
