Fight Club. The Most Insightful Movie Ever.

Discussion in 'Chit Chat' started by DT-waw, Aug 6, 2011.

  1. In 1999 there were 3 extremely revealing movies: Fight Club, Eyes Wide Shut and The Matrix.

    It was 13 years into 2012 and the year contains 666 flipped upside down.

    What the authors were trying to say? Quotes from the main character, Tyler Durden:

    "We’re consumers. We are byproducts of a lifestyle obsession. Murder, crime, poverty, these things don’t concern me. What concerns me are celebrity magazines, television with 500 channels, some guy’s name on my underwear. "

    "God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place."

    "You’re not your job. You’re not how much money you have in the bank. You’re not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You’re not your fucking khakis. You’re the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world. "

    "Rogaine, Viagra, Olestra&#8230;Fuck Martha Stewart. Martha&#8217;s polishing the brass on the Titanic. <b>It&#8217;s all going down, man </b>. So fuck off with your sofa units and Strinne green stripe patterns."


    Plus, the movie predicted 9/11 in final scene:

  2. Research nihilism, and then get back to me.
     
  3. its not about nihilism. not at all.

    in the middle of the movie there is a line:

    " the movie goes on, and nobody in the audience has any clue what is all about".

    incredible, the movie itself predicted that audience will not understand it.

    there is a talk about controlled demolition in the beginning and crashing two towers in final scene.

    hmmm... joe thinks its meaningless

    It is an amazing movie!

    Having been a student of philosophy, I find it to be a very accurate depiction of the collective psyche of our times, but also a work of art in itself.

    But, like Nietzsche, it will be forever doomed to be misunderstood and labelled as nihilistic and misanthropic, when in fact the opposite is true...
     
  5. the movie is a comprehensive guide how to rebel against social norms and government. how to fight with corporations.

    there is a scene were durden tells members to get into fight with strangers. all strangers are not pissed off, dont want to engage in a fight.

    exactly like the current society. docile, can't fight with oppressors - fed, bush, rockefeller, cia.
     
  6. How on earth is a the blowing up of credit card towers in delaware, in an attempt to reset peoples credit, related to 9/11?

    We are taught if you want to do or have stuff you need money, the movie asks, "Do you really want to do this stuff?"

    To be honest, I view the movie as a metaphorical translation of our subconscious "will to power"...

    script:

    Three minutes. This is it: Ground zero. Would you like to say a few words to mark the occasion?

    JACK
    ...i...ann....iinn..ff...nnyin....

    JACK (V.O.)
    With a gun barrel between your teeth, you speak only in vowels.

    Tyler removes the gun from Jack's mouth.

    JACK
    I can't think of anything.

    JACK (V.O.)
    For a second I totally forgot about Tyler's whole controlled demolition thing and I wonder how clean that gun is.

    Tyler approaches the window so that he can see down --31 stories.

    TYLER
    Getting exciting now.

    JACK (V.O.)
    That old saying, how you always hurt the one you love, well, it works both ways.

    JACK (V.O.)
    We have front row seats for this theater of Mass Destruction. The Demolitions Committee of Project Mayhem wrapped the foundation columns of a dozen buildings with blasting gelatin. In two minutes, primary charges will blow base charges, and a few square blocks will be reduced to smoldering rubble. I know this, because Tyler knows this.


    one of durdens jobs in the movie was to put images onto film tape.
    the same trick is actually used in the movie itself!


    Tyler
    In the industry we call them "cigarette burns".

    JACK
    That's a cue for a change over.
    The movie goes on , and nobody in the audience has any idea.
     

  9. oh yes, its totally not related to 9/11

    words like: controlled demolition, ground zero in the script, the final scene when towers collapse, numerous scenes of airplanes flying, airplane crash scene, the scene with "Human Sacrifice" text on the doors, the world premiere at Venice Film Festival on Sep 10th 1999...

    all these facts are totally not related with the evil terrorists attacks :eek:

    Don't forget that Osama Bin Laden was an executive producer...
