  New York State Writers Institute - Fight Club Film Notes

 Anaylsis Of The Film: Fight Club
Fight Club is no exception; it is a multi-layered film with many subplots and themes, but the primarily it a surrealistically description of the status of the American male at the end of the 20th century.
Fight Club lets men live by liberating them; they are allowed to express their primal nature, to be men and reclaim their independent strength, courage and power.
Fight Club takes these themes, consumerism, emasculation of the male and liberation and weaves them together to make a cohesive narrative on the disenchanted, unfilled, castrated male who desperately seeks to be free from societies control.

 Stu's Fight Club Review
In "Fight Club" Pitt is finally fulfilling his earlier potential shown in movies such as "Seven" and "12 Monkeys." These two fine actors are the center of "Fight Club," and their unlikely but utterly believable friendship drives most of the plot.
The violence that takes place in the fight clubs is abhorrent, a knee-jerk reaction to a society that only values people as consumers and cogs in a system, where redemption is promised by commodities.
But as the narrator observes: "When the fight is over, nothing is solved." At one point, he even refers to the fight clubs as his "wasted life." He beats someone nearly to death, and his only rationale is "I wanted to destroy something beautiful." Their actions are not to be imitated or admired.

 Fight Club
Fight Club largely ignores issues surrounding the break up of labor unions, the slashing of the U.S. workforce, extensive plant closings, downsizing, outsourcing, the elimination of the welfare state, the attack on people of color, and the growing disparities between the rich and the poor.
Fight Club portrays a society in which public space collapses and is filled by middle class white men--disoriented in the pandemonium of conflicting social forces--who end up with a lot of opportunities for violence and little, perhaps none at all, for argument and social engagement.
Fight Club reminds us of the need to reclaim the discourses of ethics, politics, and critical agency as important categories in the struggle against the rising tide of violence, human suffering, and the specter of fascism that threatens all vestiges of democratic public life.

 Fight Club review
However, Fight Club rapidely goes beyond this premise in order to explore a multitude of facets more absurd from one to the other.
Furthermore, for a film which denounces the consumer society, it is contradictory and even idiotic to invest by millions (65 to be exact) into this subversive idea.
Cleverly, the film denounces what it is. A hybrid work, falsely provocative, which amuses itself by criticizing cinematographical and ideological codes which it uses in good number.

When they together start the eponymous fight club -- for downtrodden males to regain their masculinity by pummelling each other into a bloody pulp -- it comes as a salvation from the soul-deadening consumerist culture.
The fighting didn’t come to dominate the movie; in fact, Tyler Durden’s increased following is reflected in the increasing intensity of the scenes in the bar basement where members of Fight Club convene.
Fight Club certainly is not a pro-violence film, so the outcry that the movie might instigate antisocial behavior is unfounded.

Fight Club, a "no-holds-barred" fighting game, will portray the brutality of street fighting while encompassing the action and story elements from the movie with intense visuals, untraditional moves, and bare-knuckle destruction.

The game follows the film, with bareknuckle fighting in a variety of places (prehaps in fight clubs around America like in the film?) however what seperates this from other (and very good fighting titles) such as Tekken is the damage.

 Fight Club Movie Review by Anthony Leong
Throughout the film, the film talks to, not at, the audience, through its narrator Jack, and as he becomes drawn into the world of Tyler Durden, the audience is drawn in with him.
The film begins with a number of witty reflections on Jack's life, which the audience takes at face value because we 'see' them on the screen-- in the language of persuasion, these introductory scenes would be called the 'yes set', aimed at gaining initial agreement.
Judging from the trailer, "Fight Club" may seem to be an uninteresting film about a group of men pummeling each other for thrills, but that is merely scratching the surface.

 Fight Club
Fight Club is one long interior monologue of such self-loathing and masochist self-indulgence that only a late-night caffeine crawler could stick with it to the nihilist overture of its extended, violent ending.
