"'Fight Club' pulls you in, challenges your prejudices, rocks your world and leaves you laughing" (Rolling Stone). Brad Pitt ("12 Monkeys", "Seven"), Edward Norton ("Primal Fear," "American History X") and Helena Bonham Carter ("Mighty Aphrodite," "A Room With A View") turn in powerful "performances of which movie legends are made" (Chicago Tribune) in this action-packed hit. A ticking-time-bomb insomniac (Norton) and a slippery soap salesman (Pitt) channel primal male aggression into a shocking new form of therapy. Their concept catches on, with underground "fight clubs" forming in every town, until a sensuous eccentric (Bonham Carter) gets in the way and ignites an out-of control spiral toward oblivion.

Plus it really makes you question said society, whether you should keep trying to be a "normal", soulless corporate drone, endlessly chasing "success", or go your own way (which is what I've tried to do). I didn't agree with all Tyler said, and certainly not with all his methods, but I agreed with enough of what he said to make him one of the most interesting book and film characters I've ever encountered. David Fincher's best film. If only more films could do Chuck's writing justice (not as big a fan of his recent stuff, but some of his earlier stuff could still make great films, just wish the movie of Choke had turned out better). If you agree with my review at all, you can mostly find me these days at twitter dot com/ShyLivesMatter Peace :)
So, what the what?
I've seen FC on DVD, cable, Netflix and bluray is the best there is. The color and contrasts are beyond peer as exceedingly rich: the grime and dirty look of project mayhem's headquarters, clothing, faces, are most strikingly clear and heavily detailed and 'pop' out to you. The DTS sound track provides the best separation and dynamic range than anything broadcast or streaming delivers as of this writing. Because of the story line, this movie is rarely played on cable, except as on-demand or Netflix, for $8 disc and this quality, it can't be beat.
Never before has a generation so diligently recorded themselves accomplishing so little. Society has us chasing 'likes' and 'shares' so we can feel more important than we are. We're posting photos of our food as if what we had for dinner defines us a person. We treat elections like reality TV shows. We're paying for higher education in order to get jobs that pay for our higher education. We believe we are all going to be social media stars and movie gods. But we won't. What we think is anti-establishment is establishment. We've become the thing that we stood against.
All this potential, being squandered. I'm thinking Fight Club is what we really need. If you open your mind and let go, it will change your life. It will have you sizing people up. You'll start wearing more red. You'll look at ads and start asking "why?" You'll get in better shape, not for others, but for yourself. You'll realize a controlling woman is the last thing you need in your life. You'll appreciate soap. You'll laugh at others trying to get the perfect selfie. You'll start thinking for yourself.
