Director: Ben Stiller
USA 2001, 89 min

“Zoolander” is a satirical comedy from 2001, featuring a dimwitted male model and ridiculing all aspects of the fashion industry in its sharp clawed and yet wacky way. Ben Stiller himself plays the lead, the male model Derek Zoolander, whose stupidity has led him to be an important tool in a plot to assassinate the Prime Minister of Malaysia, which forms the majority of the plot of the film. It is based on a short film Stiller developed in 1996-1997 for the VH1 Fashion Awards ceremonies. “Zoolander” is still considered a quite wacky and sharp comedy, and has developed a cult following globally.
