A pretty interesting short cut of Fight Club which focusses more on the romance side and Tyler's Durden's identity, although there's enough of the original plot to render the edit a little confusing if you've not seen the original (obviously do not watch this without watching the original). Still, it's a bold idea to make a cut of Fight Club which doesn't feature the actual fight club. Editing is slightly rushed - but it works.

I do think that the edit would've made more sense had Marla featured more heavily, but I understand that this was for a consecution so TCN had to stay under a certain runtime if I'm not mistaken.

Great little short! The post-"dream" transition was a bit abrupt, but I think that was a stylistic choice by the editor. Otherwise, everything is edited together seamlessly. Well done cuddly.

A most atypical love triangle. Dysfunction, neuroses, mutual deception, self-deception (and then some). A very dark short, and very well paced and presented.

I enjoyed this one a lot. I think Fight Club is a great film and have seen it a number of times, and overall I think thecuddlyninja's effort at condensing the story worked. Of necessity there are some elements that have to go unexplained - the Space Monkeys just appear in the story, some of the background between Marla and the Narrator has to be read through subtext, things like that - but I think these are limitations in the source. I did feel that the transition back from the dream sequence was a tad abrupt, but I suspect it was intentional as all the other transitions (including the music replacement near the end) were smoothly handled.

"Self Help" was a fun edit of "Fight Club" that told an abridged version of the love story between The Narrator/Tyler Durden and Marla, but if you had never seen the original "Fight Club", you would have very little context of what was going on. Overall, it was pretty well-executed and retained "Fight Club's" insane charm.
