Children of Men - An analysis by Slavoj Zizek

And I thought it was just a boring movie..

It's amazing when a book or movie is analyzed for subplots, hidden meaning, and symbolism. I remember by honors english teacher in 9th grade go over Steinbeck's books explaining all the hidden material. It only manifests itself if someone shows it to you. Even then, it is still lost as I cannot find or relate to the symbols nor the hidden meaning. Furthermore, even what you thought was the jist of the chapter or book wasn't to be. The actual meaning was something else.
