EP 175: We Do Not Talk About Fight Club

Patrick is joined this week by guest host Cassidy of the film review podcast The McGuffin, to take a deep cultural dive into the guts of the 1999 David Fincher film Fight Club.

Along the way we explore the homosexual and asexual subtext in the film.

We debate if Tyler Durden is spouting general toxic MRA talking points?  Is he a representative for that strain of American death cult nihilism? Or is he a warning sign of proto fascism wrapped in the cloak of anti-consumerism and rebellion?

Heavy Stuff right?  Well Cassidy also informs Patrick of Doomer Culture and corrects his misunderstandings of David Fincher as an artist and filmmaker. 

Intro Music: Bad Religion – 21st Century (Digital Boy)

Outro Music: The Pixies: – Where is My Mind
