Review: I really enjoyed this book, Palahniuk definitely has a style all of his own. I will definitely read more of his work.

Review: I don't know how to start with this review. I watched the film when it came out and enjoyed it. Reading the book many years later, I know a lot of what will happen throughout it. It's a quick read and it moves at a fare pace. It's plot will keep you interested in where it's headed but after my enjoyment of the film the book states its case more straightforward. As a man I can understand the main protagonists cynical view but what starts out as an awakening of his own lack of position, turns into wanting to cause trouble to innocent people. That's where I went off it a bit. Like with pranksters who pick on people, who you know won't enjoy it or find it funny; just feels a bit off. The point that everyone dies and everything is falling apart is all well and good; but the anarchy nonsense just seemed too far. Like the hidden army, it just seems too far fetched. To go from a couple of guys hitting each other to trying to reshape the world; just not got that plausibility to it. I didn't find it a bad book but I wanted to tell the main lead to get over himself. We all feel lost and aimless but you need a focus. That focus not being knocking a fellow man black and blue.

  • Waterstones Marxist Film Theory and Fight Club

    Price: £18.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Anna Kornbluh provides an overview of Marxist approaches to film, with particular attention to three central concepts in Marxist theory in general that have special bearing on film: 'the mode of production," 'ideology," and 'mediation." In explaining how these concepts operate and how they have been used and misused in film studies, the volume employs a case study to exemplify the practice of Marxist film theory. Fight Club is an exceptionally useful text with which to explore these three concepts because it so vividly and pedagogically engages with economic relations, ideological distortion, and opportunities for transformation. At the same time, it is a very typical film in terms of the conditions of its production, its marketing, and its popularity. Adapted from a novel by Chuck Palahniuk, the film is a contemporary classic that has lent itself to significant re-interpretation with every shift in the political economic landscape since its debut. Marxist Film Theory and Fight Club models a detailed cinematic interpretation that students can practice with other films, and furnishes a set of ideas about cinema and society that can be carried into other kinds of study, giving students tools for analyzing culture broadly defined.
