Fight Club's Representation of Consumer Culture

Fight Club's (Fincher, 1999) depiction of consumer culture remains all too relevant--so in a way, I'm not entirely surprised that the film has moved up on the Top 250 chart from #37, when I wrote my MA thesis on the film ten years ago, to #10, where it is today in 2015. And my college students continue to watch the film and discuss it.

Anyways, here's my dated take on it: "It was on the tip of everyone's tongue, Tyler and I just gave it a name": Fight Club's Representation of Consumer Culture." If you get a chance, let me know what you think of the movie. My goodness, its opening act/exposition is perfect. And it's a great novel too.
