David Fincher’s 1999 film Fight Club sees renewed interest online after being labeled a “red flag” movie

David Fincher’s 1999 cult classic Fight Club is making waves on social media.

Fight Club began trending after a Twitter user posited the question, “We all know red flag movies, Fight Club, The Joker, etc, that we all can spot on sight, but is there any green flag movies? Movies that you hear someone say that makes you instantly trust or like a person?” While the tweet was seemingly designed to generate positivity, however, many people took issue with the “red flag movies” element of the question.

Directed by Fincher, Fight Club is based on the 1996 Chuck Palahniuk novel of the same name and stars Edward Norton and Brad Pitt as a duo that decides to open up an underground fight club. Over the course of the film, it’s revealed that Norton’s unnamed office worker and Pitt’s soap salesman are actually the same man: Tyler Durden.

Since its release, Fight Club has generated controversy in some circles for how viewers perceive the demonstrably unstable and problematic Tyler Durden. There were also, of course, the real-life fight clubs that sprung up in response to the film.
