Fight Club (1999)
A ticking-time-bomb insomniac and a slippery soap salesman channel primal male aggression into a shocking new form of therapy. Their concept catches on, with underground "fight clubs" forming in every town, until an eccentric gets in the way and ignites an out-of-control spiral toward oblivion.
This is an astonishing documentary that will wring your heart while it bends your mind
The biggest problem with this movie is it’s a little better than you think it might be, which somehow makes it worse. As in, it takes itself a bit too seriously, which makes most of the movie feel kind of dull.
It's simply great fun, a winsome film and an occasionally over-the-top luxury fantasy that never flags.
The roles fit the actors very well. The ending was so surprising and unexpected. The physical appearance of the actors is more than enough to convince you that they fit the roles. The storyline is new and changed the movie industry in a magnificent way. Even though this movie is old but in my opinion it's still one the best movies ever made and deserves to be in the top 10 best movies and will always be remembered by it's story and actors and specially the amazing photography
This movie is just AWESOME!!!!! that's it, I really liked it so much and I liked Edward Norton and Brad Pitt acting together
This film is an awakening! The film boast excellent character development but you must pay attention to understand! If you are watching the fights; you are watching for the wrong reason!
The Fight Club movie, like its more successful but equally troubled cousin The Matrix, has some philosophical themes, originality in presentation, and is also strong on satire. Another movie that it is similar in some ways is vastly superior and more intelligent and fun American Psycho. The plot is adapted from the eponymous book, which "borrows" ideas from Dostoevsky's "The Double" and puts some "Thus spoke Zarathustra" along a way. It is derivative and not very good, certainly not as good as its cult followers would suggest. In any case, given the hype, I was expecting more. There are some good points along the way - especially its anticipation of terrorism, and some good transformational scenes, like when confronting a boss, but overall, it comes across as much more shallow than its reputation would suggest. It is high on style and influence, has lot of ideas crammed in and it might have been even revolutionary in some respects for its time (like the Matrix, which I also find a bit missing), so perhaps its worth a watch, but it is not a perfect masterpiece some assume it is. It may seem so to perhaps teens, incels and millenials, but this is not the most successful nor sophisticated rendering of such ideas. Tone your expectations down, give it a try, this is a movie that can work in bits and pieces, has originality, but is sometimes given WAY too much credit.
