it really kinda fetishises a lot of what 'masculinity' is, whilst also selling the most directionless and meaningless anti-consumerist rhetoric. Bad film, I say.

yeah, you're right. maybe my shitiest friends could benefit from the anti consumerism, but they would probably turn into tyler durden likes and start down a bad road meanness.

I don't mean that 'anti-consumerism' is a bad thing, it's just useless when it's as spineless and indirect as it is in fight club

i liked it the first time i saw it. the second time, i realized that i didn't really get it the first time and also that i didn't actually like it.

i'm not a fan of the hyper-violence, for sure.

it doesn't help most of my friends who are diehard fans love it for the hypermasculine part and don't know/care about anything else

i like the movie for fincher's directing and i like the book for palahniuk's writing. yeah it has its ups and downs but the best way to see if you like it is to watch it yourself.
