*ggl* Night Two of the Kam Film Festival... *L*!
Kam was crazy about "Gangster No. 1" - or thought she would be - so I put in on my NetFlix list. It was great. She's a huge fan of "Fight Club", so it was on the list next. Well, I finally got to them and watched one yesterday and am watching the other tonight.

"Fight Club" is a real trip - *L*! Wasn't what I thought. It's really about how men have become such "women" today - spending their time looking through Ikea catalogs, raised by women, and so on... looking for what makes them feel alive. First the Ed Norton character is into all these help groups for survivors of various diseases. Then he meets the Brad Pitt character - *G*. It is so bizarre... you should check out some of the trivia on imdb.com. It's quite interesting. Of course, it's "wrong"... but interesting.

So tell me, folks... as I'm watching both of them, the homoeroticism is absolutely palpable. Is that just because I read too much slash, or is it really there? *G*

Hey... Kisa! It's got Jared Leto. Although I haven't recognized him yet. *G*

[ETA: "Where you going with this, IKEA boy?" *G* I know realize that Jared was the "beautiful one"... and I've seen the twist in the plot... and, whoa... it's a doozy! FUCK! (pardon my language) Can you say "Twelve Monkeys"? Whoa. Man, this guy has a high tolerance for pain!

*L*!!!!!! Just saw the "bit of intercut porn" - *L*! This is... brilliantly bizarre! *G* Thanks, Kam.

Well I don't know about 1... but I know it's there for Fight Club, because Tyler is everything Jack wants to be, so it seems that he would be in love with himself a bit.

Brilliant... because in Gangster No. 1, Freddy is everything the young gangster wants to be... and, as I'm seeing happen here... a girl comes between them. Strange symmetry...

Interesting you're watching Fight Club, as it's the one film most often mentioned in Hooligan's Q&A's

That makes perfect sense... I was thinking about Hooligans, too, while watching it.

Cool - I had no idea "Fight Club" had intelligent content. I wish I still had Netflix, and/or a better tolerance for on-screen violence.

You're a good film reviewer - I'll look forward to more! :)

It is VERY violent... but in service of the story. And... amazingly strange and twisted!

Hmm... good to have a review of it then. ;) I probably won't get a chance to see it.

Jared Leto is the "beautiful" one that Edward Nortan beats the shit out of.

"I felt like destroying something beautiful."- is my favorite line.

The whole "fight" thing turned me off (as it probably did a lot of women); sounded like too much testosterone!
