On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable celebrates the 15th anniversary of Fight Club!  Where does it rank in David Fincher’s filmography?  Do its messages of anti-consumerism and anti-corporatization still resonate in today’s culture of conspicuous consumption?  Has its message of male empowerment been misconstrued by the proponents of groups such as the Men’s Rights Movement?  Can the film be considered irredeemably misogynist considering the treatment its lone female character at the hands of the male leads?  Does Fight Club merit comparison to other watershed films such as A Clockwork Orange?  Will David Fincher ever return to that kind of aggressive filmmaking?

We’ll also be having one of our patented freestyle sessions!  Everything is fair game and nothing off limits.  The topics will be varied and interesting.  We’ll be jumping down the proverbial pop culture rabbit hole to see what we can find.  There’s no telling where the discussion will take us, but it will surely be a fun ride.  Feel free to tune in and join us!  You won’t be disappointed!
