A Short Film About Love

”I often visited churches with my father. In a church in Uppland, somewhere on the nave vaults, is a work by Albertus Pictor, the famous ecclesiastical painter. The painting depicts Death playing chess with a knight. ” - Ingmar Bergman

"I’m pretty obsessed with hands, I think the essence of being violent starts from there. If you cut off hands to a man he is no more dangerous and his violent instinct stops beating. The hands are like an extension of his penis and cut them it’s like a castration.”

Nicolas Winding Refn

During rehearsals, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton found out that they both hated the new Volkswagen Beetle with a passion, and for the scene where Tyler and The Narrator are hitting cars with baseball bats, Pitt and Norton insisted that one of the cars be a Beetle. As Norton explains on the DVD commentary, he hates the car because the Beetle was one of the primary symbols of 60s youth culture and freedom. However, the youth of the 60s had become the corporate bosses of the 90s, and had repackaged the symbol of their own youth, selling it to the youth of another generation as if it didn’t mean anything. Both Norton and Pitt felt that this kind of corporate selling out was exactly what the film was railing against, hence the inclusion of the car; “It’s a perfect example of the Baby Boomer generation marketing its youth culture to us. As if our happiness is going to come by buying the symbol of their youth movement, even with the little flower holder in the plastic molding. It’s appalling to me. I hate it.”
