Ironic Stereotypes In David Fincher's Fight Club

135 Words1 Page
Today, many of our perceptions are deceived by systemic stereotypes, often fogging our own ability understand ourselves. This is what suppresses the main character, and a group of other members, in David Fincher’s Fight Club. In the film, both male and female characters are stereotypical and overly sexualized. The film is extremely generalized and Fincher accomplishes this by presenting the characters with no desire to come against the reality of gender norms. The conventions that are held as a standard in the film are the orthodox characteristics of how men are supposed to appear. The director uses hyper masculinity and tyrannical control as the catalyst to the perspective that their identity is a subconscious power struggle for self-identification.
