dc.description.abstractThis study seeks to account for the numerous ways critics in reviews, magazine articles, journal articles and books have interpreted David Fincher's Fight Club. It also seeks to account for growing appeal of the film even though it was initially described as a failure at the box-office. The film clearly engages with many provocative ideas, leading to the many ways it has been interpreted. This exploration is facilitated through an exploration of the various labels that have been placed on the film and investigates to what extent the film manages to provide a coherent message beyond its mixed bag of 'hip' allusions.en_ZA
