I'm spending the next nine weeks teaching about this single film to my A2 Film Studies students so this couldn't have been published at a better time. For those interested or intrigued at how we can spend nine weeks, that's nine hour and a half long lessons talking about just this one film, this is how I kind of break it down though there is some overlap:
- Jack /Tyler Durden – the meaning and significance of this split person
- A progressive film or a deeply reactionary one?
- The representation of modern urban and corporate life
- The representation of masculinity and its threats
- Is Marla as a representative of women an object of scorn? Is it misogynistic?
- Managing the spectator’s identification and sympathies
- Distinctive stylistic features and the look of the film
- Motifs and their function
- The social and cultural context of production
- Critical and popular responses to the film
Loving the use of The Pixies' Where is my Mind?' in the final scene at Filmoria
Fight Club: Worryingly the movie that most influenced my life at Inspired Ground
Fight Club: Best film of the 1990's
This is just purely about why I love Fight Club.
Why Fight Club is one of the best examples of a book adaptation.
Is Fight Club a film about power and control rather than liberation?
Like I said, I'm sure there will be more to come so I'll update this post as I write more. Thanks for reading and do feel free to share your thoughts on Fight Club in the comments below!
