A Long, Hard Review

A Critical analysis of Fight Club, long one of my favourite films. Warning: the analysis is thoroughly steeped in Critical Theory, which wouldn't be so bad if it didn't involve large dollops of psychoanalysis, which I rank only slightly under Ayn Rand in the Offensively Bad Philosophy hierarchy (note that the author is a professor of English). I'd suggest skimming those sections, reading for the conclusions rather than the way the author gets there.
