Rule #1: You do not talk about Fight Club.  Rule #2. You do not talk about Fight Club.  Join your favourite Transatlantic podcasting duo - Ian & Liam - as we break these two rules all over the place as we look at David Fincher's Counterculture Classic, Fight Club.  We're joined once again by our permaguests, Ellie & Georgia to discuss a movie that we hold near and dear to our hearts and view it again through a 2020 lens, which again proves to be somewhat problematic.  Join us as we discuss:

  • Who else was the main competition for the role of Tyler Durden?
  • Is this a glamourisation of violence or a critical attack on conventional masculinity (could it be both?)
  • Which controversial line from the script was actually a re-write for a different censored line.
  • Is the best part of this film the reveal of the twist?  Does the film lose something after it occurs?
  • If Ed Norton actually good in this?
  • Does Tyler Durden's Act I look still hold up as cool in 2020?
  • If "Fight Club" is the Best Film Ever?
