A controversial cult hit with the most famous first rule in cinema history, David Fincher's Fight Club is one of the defining movies of its era. But does this hyper-violent satire of 90s masculinity have more to offer than a memorable twist in the cold light of 2019?
In this week's podcast, we discuss the trouble with Fight Club's very straight, very white, very male point of view, the bullshit philosophies of Tyler Durden, Helena Bonham Carter's fabulous smoking aesthetic and much more, before pitching our drinking games and fantasy sequel concepts...
Beyond The Box Set is a movie podcast in which each week, we take a look back at a classic standalone film and challenge ourselves to pitch sequel, prequel or spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen.
