Your long=winded schpiel on feeling is admirable, but you are wrong to say that 1) tyler durden's character was a 5 and 2) there is no feeling in the movie. They were probably feelings you cannot relate to--the main one being human alienation. What the movie beautifully depicts is a world where man's basic natures are repressed in the name of superficial consumerism. I'm surprised you missed that. Its about returning to a more primitive existence, where a man's freedom is not chained up in his material greed.
This is not a sappy love story. ITs a critique on society. It's a statement. It's a movie more for people who are thinkers, not feelers. The problem with movies today is they are to geared to produce instanteneous, commercialized feelings, like the kind you seem to long for. This movie is not for people who are still mindless drones locked up in an artificial reality. So I think it was wise that you had shut it off when you did, because it definately is not your kind of movie.
