In addition, if Tyler is a coping mechanism who represents masculinity, he presumably actually has a penis — so the dildo is not a threat — while Jack who has been possibly physically emasculated would see the dildo as a threat. This would also help add even more strength to my vibrating suitcase theory below. The most interesting part about this scene is that Jack is utterly confused. If he had been the person to actually pack his bags, then surely he would understand what COULD be vibrating in the suitcase.
However, if Jack is actually Marla, then Marla is likely the one who packed his bags. Which means there actually is a dildo in the luggage. This also helps explain the box on the luggage carousel.
Who else do we know that spends almost all of his time in hotels? Oh right, Jack. The latter of the two being the actual, real hotel in Los Angeles where the exterior shots were filmed. He was transitioning back into Marla and turning off his masculine persona. The Paper Street house now clearly becomes just an illusion, even the name of the street of the house points to this. Click the images to see the full text on the bus advertisement then view the following frame of Jack walking into the illuminated Paper Street house.
This is why Bob is profoundly thanking him after the fight. Marla has just told Jack she stopped going to the support groups, why?
The same goes for Bob. His two other personalities are now using this opportunity to try to get back into his life. Need even more proof? Did you notice anything interesting about the screenshot above? The spray painted words are not there. This is telling us that now there are 4 main people that Jack is essentially operating as, including himself in addition to Bob, Marla, Tyler. The only characters throughout the entire film who we ever know the full names of are Bob Robert Paulson , Marla Singer and Tyler Durden. This is the incentive for Tyler to save her.
If Jack dies, everyone dies. This is why Jack asks this rhetorical question of why Tyler would waste his time saving her. Why else would Tyler save her if she were an actual person? In addition there is this: and this is a theory with only circumstantial evidence, I admit, but it makes sense. Jack requests two pills, one of which is an anxiolytic like Xanax. Jack has in mind Tuinal and Seconal, both of which share very similar properties to Xanax, being anxiolytics and hypnotic drugs. What if when Jack is at the doctor, he is actually getting diagnosed as having testicular cancer, and is in fact prescribed these drugs to help cope with the anxiety along with being told to attend cancer support groups?
And I used to be such a nice guy. Why is this? It also provides more proof that Marla is simply another figment of his imagination in that she is a coping mechanism. The more she is needed, the stronger she becomes. Jack has just been found out along with his association with Fight Club, an enormously panic-inducing experience , triggering the need for his coping mechanism, Marla, to help him through the ordeal. Right on cue, the phone rings and it is Marla to help get him out of the situation, literally asking him to leave work immediately and come to her house to check her for breast cancer.
This is a big one. Fast forward to when Tyler saves Marla and they are now in the habit of constantly having sex with each other. If masturbation is self improvement, and if Marla, Tyler and Jack are all the same person, then Jack is masturbating. In the scenes where Tyler and Marla are having sex and yelling, what is Jack doing?
He is engaging in self improvement. This is proof that Marla is not real, and is in fact Jack, since he is essentially masturbating in these scenes through his self improvement as the house is destroyed. This ties in later with the demolition of the credit card buildings. His exchange with Marla takes less than a minute, yet when he leaves it is entirely dark outside. Where did the time go? If you consider the idea that Marla is in fact Jack, then it makes perfect sense. If Marla has cancer, Jack has cancer — so he has to check himself for cancer.
This explains why Marla offers to return the favor as well. She says she will check his prostate, which is interesting since it connects to the idea that he is somehow removed of his sexual organs or they are compromised by cancer. Everyone remembers how Tyler Durden makes his soap — stolen fat from the liposuction clinic.
To be more specific, the contents of the dumpsters are in fact infectious human waste. This makes perfect sense since Marla is Tyler and in this scene we are actually watching Jack running away from the hotel and speaking about Marla. This is a deliberate connection the director was trying to make. However if you consider that Marla is Tyler and Jack, then Jack is fucking himself, and will ultimately destroy himself — essentially an abortion of himself.

This makes her choice of words make much more sense. Tyler never finishes his sentence. Earlier in the film we saw Jack go into the bathroom to find used condoms in the toilet. For those of you who might not know, this is a reference to the fairy tale Cinderella.
A story of a woman who puts on a piece of clothing a shoe and undergoes a transformation. Remember the gown Marla is wearing? And sure enough, how many condoms are in the toilet, despite the script stating there should be 6…? This shows that Fincher deliberately made a change to the script in order to make this connection between the two. Rule 2 — Bob Is Not Real. How many men have you ever heard of have breasts as large as Bob?
Then hormone therapy. He developed bitch tits because his testosterone was too high and his body upped the estrogen. Most Western religions do not believe their male God has breasts. Bob is the creator, in the sense that he is the origins of Marla and Tyler. These are two very direct references to Bob being some type of creator or God — or at the very least, the origins of other characters. There you go. When Bob is doing an operation for Project Mayhem he is shot in the head by a security guard as he is running away.
Meanwhile his only partner who was helping him, who was also running away, found the time to go back and pick up big Moosey all on his own and bring him back to the non-existent Paper Street house. Why would a cop shoot someone who was unarmed and running away? Also, where the hell was the omnipresent Tyler Durden when all of this was happening? Tyler is never missing from the Paper Street house or any other Project Mayhem operation and is often the one leading them, yet he is completely absent from this operation with no explanation. When Bob is first confiding in Jack at the testicular cancer support group, he even implies he has two adult children.
What is something we learn about Marla and Tyler after Jack comes home to find his condo exploded and he attempts to call both of them…? Tyler is deliberately screening his phone calls, while Marla who we know lives at a hotel, and cannot possibly have caller ID simply picks up the phone. Consider the timing. In other words, Bob is going to lose his breasts. Jack explains his occupation to the woman on the airplane, who later turns into Tyler on the same exact flight, saying…. The rear differential locks up.
The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? The movie cuts to Jack inspecting the car wreckage with two technicians. One of the technicians says…. Who is the father? Just like inferred earlier with the subtle hints regarding the breasts and God, the father is Bob. Further proof he is not real. The symbolism is simple and completely congruent with the theme of the film regarding the duality of the sexes, particularly within the narrator. The car that is in the wreck is the same Lincoln Towncar that Jack and Tyler later crash and wreck.
Rule 3 — Raymond K. Raymond is yet another alternate personality that he threatens in order to control. Apart from Bob, Marla and Tyler, Raymond is the only other personality that has a full name in the film. But how would he know specifically that it was a small, cramped apartment? The answer is simple: Raymond does not exist, and is just another alternate personality that Tyler is trying to control and destroy. We know the Project Mayhem members live in the basement after Jack goes down to talk to Tyler and discovers the make shift bunk beds Tyler had been noisily constructing while he was talking to Marla in the kitchen.
What is particularly confusing about this is the fact the house has any letters on it at all, as it is not an apartment complex or unit, and is simply a house. This further adds credence to the theory that the Paper Street house does not actually exist as Jack imagines it and that it is rather an apartment or hotel room in reality. Why was Raymond so hesitant to tell Tyler this? Why does it feel so much like an interrogation? So why is Raymond a threat?
Why is he being interrogated and terrorized? Because he wants to be a veterinarian. Veterinarians help animals, and more specifically — pets. Each alternate personality poses a threat to Tyler. Raymond will never return, and he is effectively dead to Jack. Actually, it is too damn similar to Usual suspects. From the interrogative style story telling to the "twist" ending that hide spoiler ] painfully lacks originality diminishes the effect of the story. Plus the art isn't winning any points here. It's a good espionage thriller.
But it had potential to be better. The story contradicts its own rules and if you'll think hard enough, you'll find so many issues that question the plot.

A solid Cold War espionage tale set in Berlin when the wall was falling. This is the book Atomic blonde is based on and our main character is neither atomic nor blonde. Obviously they are punching the story up because there's more action in the trailer than there is in this entire book.

A pistol-packing, shades toting, fishnet-wearing Ms. Theron is even pictured on the cover. Ditto the new, alluring title. Don't we all just love 'bait and switch'? Well I don't. Protagonist Lorraine Broughton - who is illustrated more so in a manner that suggests actresses Faye Dunaway or Meryl Streep when they portrayed demure characters - is a veteran espionage officer from MI-6 assigned to an investigation in Berlin.
The setting is original, as it's just scant weeks before the Wall fell in autumn of '89 and the Cold War was still 'hot. The ending won't be a surprise to those fairly well-read, though.

I've yet to see the film Atomic Blonde. I keep spending my theater cash, of which I don't have much of, on books. Either way, I really enjoyed The Coldest City , and I liked the Soviet era setting, but it was just your average run-of-the-mill graphic novel, not particularly memorable or special. Beautiful artwork, though. I'd definitely look for more work by the illustrator again.

Even excellent ones like Wish Me Luck have a good, strong dosing of romance. The women in such spy movie tend to be helpless, evil until they met the good guy and then they either repent or get dumb, or to be in charge like M in James Bond.

There are exceptions, Wish Me Luck had tough women in it, but overall you have to wonder how the woman got into the spy business to begin with if she was going to break so quickly. This is why it is nice to read this graphic novel. This is very much like Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy, but with more twists, excellent well done twists.
But if you are looking for a cerebral story set in the waning days of the Cold War, this is fits the prescription. The central character is Lorraine, a woman sent to Berlin to discover what has happened to a missing list. You know those list that if it gets into the wrong hands, everyone dies. The great thing is that it works well in this graphic novel because Johnston brings freshness to it. Even in graphic novel format, the characters are well shaded and far from flat. Lorraine is an interesting, a tough as nails woman she is not a girl , very much like the spies that tend to show up in the British drama.
Supporting characters are also very believable. This is a nicely done and thrilling mystery in terms of plot. At first, I got frustrated at the panels where the faces are blank ovals such panels are not the majority, but there are enough to notice , then I realized that the style, especially the blank faces really suits a spy story. The artwork, therefore, re-enforces the theme of the graphic novel as well as being a representation of the action.
This is very cool. Even though the story is based in the real world, in some ways it reminded me of Watchmen in terms of theme. This is a graphic novel worth reading. View all 7 comments. My immediate reaction post-read: FYI: I am not even going to deny the fact that I am probably in the high percentage of people that purchased this only because I wanted to read the novel before seeing the movie.
The art style was bland for such an action-packed story, and often times, the art appeared half-finished. And while I enjoyed the story being told through flashbacks, the main plot just wasn't enough to consistently hold my attention. Perhaps this is one of those novels that translates better on film? Would I recommend this? Aug 06, Mladen rated it liked it Shelves: comics. I thought this was a very good engaging spy, mystery, thriller, from a decent start, to a great conclusion. My only 2 nitpicks with this one is:First in some panels the art looked good, and in the other ones didn't.

To that end, they send in veteran agent Lorraine Broughton to figure out who killed him and to get her hands on that list at all costs. Lorraine must navigate a world of double and triple The Coldest City is a tense, spy thriller set in Cold War era Berlin right as the Berlin Wall comes down.
Lorraine must navigate a world of double and triple agents, Western and Communist governments and many more dangers to get to her goal but she is not a woman used to failure. The Coldest City is a bit difficult to rate. Particularly at the beginning, the pacing of the story is tense and it's impossible to know who's really out to help Lorraine and who just wants to gain her trust in order to remove her from the picture. The minimalist style of Sam Hart's illustration does a fantastic job of using light and shadow to create an aura of mystery, cold and intense danger that immediately drew me in.
Unfortunately, that same style made the last half of the book confusing as hell.

The story relies upon remembering which character is which, a task made much more difficult by the lack of detail in the artwork. It took reading the ending several times to get even a vague idea of what the hell happened. The story reminded me very much of one of my favorite movies view spoiler [The Usual Suspects hide spoiler ] , so much so that I think naming the movie counts as a spoiler since you'll be expecting that twist. The story is well written but I definitely got frustrated with the handling of the ending because the confusion of it made it hard to feel satisfied at the end. The fact that I read Velvet on the same evening probably didn't help since I enjoyed that story significantly more.
Overall, Coldest City is worth reading and the mood of it is skillfully done in both writing and illustrations but I wouldn't count it as a personal favorite. Jul 04, Mike rated it liked it.

Clearer facial compositions, additional "costume" details, different fonts for their dialogue, or gods forbid judicious use of colour. In a story of intrigue, double-cross and veiled meanings, this is a near-fatal flaw or maybe I'm just too damned lazy to go back and re-read to piece them all together. Two, the ending blew it for me. Everything was pretty sparse throughout, teasing us with foreshadowing and conflicting knowledge of who an what. Then Johnston decides to a throw a whole dogpile of poorly-explained details together that explain his point of view on what "truly" happened.
Yawn - saw that coming half a book away, and prayed that Johnston would just play our expectations against us. A decent potboiler, good enough to pass a quiet Sunday afternoon. Dec 01, Lauren rated it liked it Shelves: graphic-sequential-art , mystery-thrillers. I loved Atomic Blonde , so I rewinded to go back to the source material. If I hadn't been familiar with the film, I would have gotten lost in the spycraft, the double agents, and the locations solely in the graphic novel. Of course, the source material had to be there for the screenplay to be written in the first place, and I prefer the changes in the film: casting Charlize Theron and James McAvoy, the fantastic soundtrack, the filming locations and general "feel" of Berlin at this time.
If you li I loved Atomic Blonde , so I rewinded to go back to the source material. If you like spy thrillers, give this a glance I am a big fan of graphic novels and as they are a rare commodity these days, I thought I was in for a treat when this book came along, but it was a tad disappointing as the story didn't deliver the tension that is required in any spy novel. Some of the portions just dragged on and weren't in proportion with the story though some parts were appealing. All in all it was a good novel but it could have been much better.
Actual Rating: 3. After watching Atomic Blonde on it's opening weekend, it had made me curious to pick up it's source material. After taking it out and reading it almost straight away, here are my thoughts: - The movie faithful to it's source material for the most part.

Instead of feeling like I was gained additional information, I felt like I was revisiting the film in a way which I don't mind because I loved the film! In a way, the movie is an extended version of the story. I love this story! It's the official story that has gotten me into spy thrillers. I couldn't thank it enough for that.

The connection to the film Atomic Blonde had brought many readers to this work. They are different in many ways. The main character is radically redrawn for the movie, the visuals are altered to a reverse polarity, and the story is rooted in a different premise with the ending twists also changed.
This is intriguing as they, the film and the original story, compliment one another not unlike the storytelling technique previously mentioned. Liest du Deutsch? That is a better question. The Coldest City is partially told via German dialogue. Not entirely 'good' German in places, but mostly effective German.
Some of it borders on modern colloquial urban German, some is idiomatic, and places there's a bit of DiploDeutsch that squeaks into the story. I'm more than a bit critical having learned various forms of German as a youth including formal instruction by Northern and Southern read Austrian teachers simultaneously.
Aug 09, Doug rated it it was ok. I rarely read graphic novels, and - as with most people who have read it in the past month - I only did so with this one since it was the basis of the new film, Atomic Blonde which I have yet to see - I wanted to read it first. Although a very quick read it can be consumed in under an hour , the story is so convoluted - and to be honest - NOT that interesting, that my enthusiasm for the film has somewhat waned.
Shelves: comic-reviews , reviewed , comics. Illustrated with a decidedly minimalist style that is almost harsh in its lo-fi application, details never reach a point of saturation and neither do lines coalesce unto anything eye-catching. Without irises popped and no oracular candy to be savored, grimy angulations never amount to anything memorable nor fantastic. While certainly inching away from anything on the bleak and nihilist side of things, the drawings within remain unbodied and thin in their lack of atmosphere.
Denuded of visible energy, each and every action seems to be perforated with shivs of a stiletto. Part flashback, part-present-time interrogation, our story moves at the speed of a snail and never develops into any significant drama or thrills until at least half-way through it. Disappointingly enough, this turgid intro never evolves a meaningful atmosphere let alone ripens strong characters that are memorable nor emotionally investible.
Nope, less Kabuki acting and more automaton-like action unfurls across a narrative draped in an uncompromisingly harsh hue of jet black.
