that some idiot teenagers and even twenty-somethings
use as an excuse
to beat each other senseless in an attempt to make the emptiness that is their life a little less empty and instead replace
it with pain - Kind of like a cutter.
The film was actually a brilliant satire and morality play
that exposes harsh truths about the nature of insanity and the disenfranchisement of a generation. It hardly glorifies violence, as many critics
have accused, it first mocks it, then shows the terrible results through the death of an innocent man and the creation of a disturbingly widespread and ignorant cult mentality. Fight Club
is about the despair we fear, and the rash measures that we find ourselves unwittingly taking
it which we should fear more.
Ironically in some cases the movie
a cult it was railing
Guy 1: Dude, did you see that
movie Fight Club? We should
so try that
Guy 2: What? Holding a fight club or rolling a gigantic globe
through the window of a coffee shop?
Guy 1: Dude, I forgot about that
was so cool!
Guy: Hey, didn't some
guy get shot because of that
Guy 1: Yeah, but he was fat had breasts.
