Re-Watched Fight Club

Watched Fight Club from

Fight Club is a movie starring Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, and Meat Loaf. An insomniac office worker and a devil-may-care soapmaker form an underground fight club that evolves into something much, much more.

It’s been years since I watched this. This time I tried to pay attention to how the switch between his personalities worked and how he interacted with Marla from her perspective.

I’m doing an insomnia program right now so it tickled my fancy to watch this 😉

Is the snowflake thing from this? I don’t see the unquestioning “soldiers” as role models that I would want to be like… but then I guess a lot of Q-ers have bought into the cult of themselves as saviors of America and are OK with just doing whatever Q tells them. When you’re brainwashed to believe you’re the only one who can fix things you can justify becoming a terrorist and insurrectionist to yourself. Maybe people missed the part where the hero of the movie ultimately rejected Tyler?

The anti-capitalist perspective of the movie’s cult also doesn’t match up with the conservative obsession with individual responsibility and worship of corporate power, but I guess we all take what we want out of a movie 🤷
