David Fincher on Fight Club’s Far-Right Fandom: ‘I’m Not Responsible for How People Interpret Things’

David Fincher’s Fight Club has had quite the ride. The satirical drama follows two men who form an underground fight club for men that evolves into much more. When the film premiered in 1999, it failed to meet expectations at the box office and received mixed reviews from critics. Despite that, the film gained a cult following, with many publications still analyzing the film’s cultural impacts and themes. In recent years, the film has become a favorite among far-right groups and incels (member of an online community of young men who claim to be involuntarily celibate), who relate to the movie’s unification of unsatisfied men rising against modern American culture.
