Fight Club

Movie • 1999 • Drama  

Report
A ticking-time-bomb insomniac and a slippery soap salesman channel primal male aggression into a shocking new form of therapy. Their concept catches on, with underground "fight clubs" forming in every town, until an eccentric gets in the way and ignites an out-of-control spiral toward oblivion.
This movie contains 65 potentially triggering events.

Two characters talk about one of their parents abandoning them as a young child. So the idea is mentioned, but it isn't shown as it happens or very significant to the plot.

It may be brief, but it's still extremely graphic and should be skipped if you have emetophobia. It's when Brad Pitt is shaking his bloody face all over the owner of the club. When he is doing this, and yelling "You don't know where I've been!" Skip forward until the owner and his goons leave the basement.

Though many parts are true to how many systems experience DID the main ick I have is the fact that a person with DID/OSDD is violent since it’s a trope that harms real life systems and adds to stigma that we are somehow dangerous or abusive for existing when we are statistically way more likely to be the victims of abuse/violence/hate crimes and DID/OSDD is typically a subconscious response to repeated trauma.

(spoilers) a male character with several female characteristics dies, but the film does not make references/jokes about being transgender or intersex.

however, a transgender or intersex person may feel uncomfortable with his portrayal.

I think this question is somewhat up to debate. THIS CONTAINS A MAJOR SPOILER FOR THE END OF THE FILM:
This movie engages (arguably) in the trope of a character with a severe mental illness being violent and unpredictable, specifically dissociative identity disorder. D.I.D. is used in more of a metaphorical fashion rather than as a response to trauma from a character, if you have D.I.D. you may find this film upsetting for its depiction.

Yes, there is a lot of gun violence, including police officers, a man attempting suicide, and a man being threatened with his life.
