I just briefly read about how PTA thought Fight Club was "irresponsible." Does anybody have any links or information on this?

That's quite funny because "Fight Club" is one of my 3 favourite films and PTA is one of my 3 favourite directors.
But I don't understand in which way "Fight Club" made fun of cancer.

coming from the same guy who made a movie about a porn industry family in the seventies and early eighties and ended it right before aids became a big deal. besides, PTA said he only sat through the first half hour of fight club anyway, so he probably only saw the support group stuff. I got a feeling that PTA is a bit of a snob.

If we didn't know he was PTA and he was just an average joe walking out and saying it just made fun of cancer, imagine how many people here would call him a stupid asshole...

Oh, totally. Magnolia was PTA's way of dealing with cancer, in a rather personal way. So when he saw the first part of Fight Club portraying sick people without a great deal of pity, he started spouting off. He was really out there -- saying stuff like: "Fuck David Fincher!" Stuff like that. It was rather humorous I thought. But he was really snobbish about Magnolia -- remember the look on his face at the Oscars when he lost the screenplay award to Alan Ball? Everybody knew Ball was going to win. But the look on PTA's face was one of outrage.

I didn't hear that. I suppose that's rational though.
