Tyler Durden ends up in a lunatic asylum?!
I like how it specified that he got out in 2012. Hahahah it's so arbitrary
My guess is they also omit the flash of penis at the end. And that they pixelate the dildo in Marla's room. Crime does not pay!
Love that Meat Loaf signed the book. Thanks for sharing.
North Korean and Chinese censorship is jaw-dropping. North Koreans risk execution if they are caught watching anything remotely Western.
Can’t be encouraging vigilantes! The state always wins!
It's almost like the book!
The most shocking part is that there's a trial at all. A fair one, I'm sure. PS Ka-ching! The Chinese market is every film distributor's dream. All movies seem to be tailored to that audience these days.
“I haven’t been fucked like that since my state-sanctioned intercourse appointment.”
Alternate ending text:
Tyler, upon his release in 2012, as a re-educated citizen, was devoted in his love and admiration of the Chinese Communist party for helping him see the error of his ways. He spent the remaining years of his life as a productive citizen—working hard and having faith in the government that had his best interests at heart. Since his release, his social credit points haven’t once seen a decline!

I'd love to say this bit of news was surprising... Alas... I chuckled, though.
Take that, transgressive fiction!
Before they burnt books, now they do wtf with films?!?
Re-cuts, censorship and so on isn´t new. In the good, olde days they even made different versions of films for different parts of the world, but this is in a league of its own.
I recommend watching the documentary Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-qiang - it gives a good insight into how China functions, and how they treat culture. Or trash culture. Restart.
This week my Sociology of the Media class happens to be discussing media censorship and the power it has to shape meaning. Going to have to talk about this.
I hear they renamed it Crouching Tyler Hidden Durden
