Was Marla a trap?

Aiden Adams

She joked about it early in the film, but I started thinking about how the whole film was about focused on the loss and reclaiming of masculinity. Wouldn't it be fitting that rather than have a boring female love interest, the film instead had a tranny- a man who essentially has given up his masculinity- as the focus of the Narrator (and Tyler's) affection?
Oh, Fight Club discussion thread, I suppose

One of my first movie crushes, right next to the both bitch from BeetleJuice.

Why did Helena age so badly? God she looks horrible now.

What if she was just another alterego like Tyler Durden.

I normally hate trying to force the whole "character was secretly gay/trans/lesbian" thing, but I think it fits with the overall theme of the film. As I said earlier, she jokes that she had her balls cut off when she and the Narrator talk about their support groups

no marla was in fact a girl and edward nortons character wanted to fuck her but he was too beta so his alter ego took over and fucked her instead. the whole movie is about his alter ego his mind invented to allow him to be the person he really wanted to be.

I remember a guy here shilling his website that was 100% dedicated on proving she wasn't real
it was pretty convincing too, right down to her not having a mirror reflection etc

No trap has a seductive voice like that. Nice theory though

Fight Club was kino
but you morons will hate either because you failed to understand it or because you're contrarian for the sake of it

Would have made the film better imo, it goes with the anarchic theme. But would have made less money.

I would go so far as to say that everyone who loves it does so because they fail to understand it.

In the deleted scenes section of the DVD there's alternate take of the "I haven't been fucked like that since grade school" about wanting to have his abortion, so no.

Plus thematically her being a grill makes more sense.

Tyler gets him thinking the last thing that as a generation of men raised by women another woman is the last thing we need
They then go down a dark destructive path of pseudo masculine "fighting"
After reaching its extremes, and the consequences they lead to he ultimately rejects that side of his psyche
And then he holds her hand because it turns out it's okay for men to still get along with women just so they're not pussies that make them their life's purpose.
so with all the older towers, symbolic of his metaphorical mental constructs, already destroyed there's now both time and space for building something new.

I make edgy jokes about how my biological father left.

It doesn't mean he didn't do it

If I only had a nickel for every slag or fag I know that ranks the movie highly just for the parts where there's no shirts.

Kayden Edwards

No, you make defensive jokes because you're a beta that hasn't accepted it was probably your mummy's fault.
