Talking Fight Club and Openly Violating Its First Rule.
Welcome to TC's Movie Podcast, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Wanna talk movies? Hey, so does TC! So listen up. And if you like what you hear, head here to subscribe to TC's Movie Podcast on iTunes. Or just make a note in your phone calendars to check back in with us each Friday to hear a new episode. Either way, really. Find the archives here.
This episode of the movie podcast is a pretty good example of what I'd ideally like this thing to sound like on a week to week basis. Here, joined by UT-Arlington history professor and previous guest host Brad Folsom, this episode is all about big ideas and themes.
It helps, of course, that Fight Club is a movie that's just filled with this kind of stuff. Throughout our talk, we discuss why this movie has the long-lasting impact it does, to what degree a Project Mayhem-like group could have success in real life, and whether this is movie contains any viable suggestions for how to live your life.
Before you ask: Yes, I know that this entire podcast is a violation of Fight Club's first and second rules.
Sorry about that, I guess?
