Private Satisfactions and Public Disorders: "Fight Club," Patriarchy, and the Politics of Masculine Violence.
Giroux, Henry A.
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v21 n1 p1-31 Win 2001
Analyzes the narrative structure of the film "Fight Club," addressing its critique of consumerism and its celebration of masculinity. Addresses the representational politics that structure the movie, especially its deeply conventional views of violence, gender relations, and masculinity. Considers the role that "Fight Club" and other cultural texts might play as public pedagogies that can be read against themselves. (PM)
