Episode 099: "Fight Club"
MG breaks the 1st rule of Fight Club!
Fight Club is so much a part of the lexicon that it's hard to imagine a modern filmscape without it -
Fight Club was a bomb upon release,
but has since worked its way so deeply into modern culture that it's hard to imagine internet discourse itself, let alone film history, without it.
But MG argues that even though it is an iconic point of reference for so many subjects,
it's also one of the most profoundly misunderstood an misinterpreted films of all time, and it's subtle critiques (yep, it has 'em)
have only gotten clearer as Fincher's filmography has grown more openly thoughtful and challenging. See what you may have missed as we get zen with David Fincher's masterpiece!
