I am Jack's fascinated audience. I am Jack's blown mind. I watched this movie, read Chuck Palahniuk's novel and then re-watched the movie, marveling how well it translated. A must watch, and one of my favorite films of all time.

Fight Club is certainly is one of the most admirable pieces of filmmaking I've ever seen. A wonderful story brought to hysterically edgy life through David Fincher's brilliant directing, Brad Pitt's and Edward Norton's excellent performances, and an engaging, thought-working script. Here is a highlight in the world of film - thrilling, visceral, and damn funny. 4/4

Fight Club is not about fighting. Fight Club is not about expressing yourself through violence. It's not about kicking a*s… It's about getting your a*s kicked.
The Narrator (Cornelius, Rupert) is our clichéd white-collar everyman consumerist, played invincibly well by Edward Norton. He is so bored with his life and so tired of his job, which requires him to travel often and cause his jet lag, which ignites his insomnia. To him everything is a copy of a copy of a copy. Nothing is real. Everything is fake. Except for Tyler Durden.
Tyler Durden is cool. Tyler Durden is a trouble-maker. Tyler Durden is a soap salesman. Tyler Durden does not exist.
The Narrator was at his lowest point, that's for sure. He was starting to descend into the abyss of insanity, until a spark of …

"Now a question of etiquette; as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?"
Edward Norton gives a spectacular performance as a man who hates his life! We meet the depressed narrator Jack, who works at a car company and has insomnia. He hasn't slept in approximately half a year and eventually he finds solace in self-help groups where he can let go and cry until he's out of tears, thus stopping the insomnia.
Everything's fine until another faker Marla (Bonham Carter) starts showing up at the meetings (even the ones for testicular cancer) which disrupt Jack’s pattern of breaking down and crying. So once again, he cannot go back to sleep at night.
Jack is sent by his boss on a business trip and on one of the flights he meets the mysterious Tyler Durden(Brad Pitt), a guy who …

A yuppie comes under the influence of an enigmatic stranger who encourages him to shed the trappings of modern consumerist life and begin an underground bare knuckle boxing club to rediscover his manhood. The 90s created a whole generation of nihilistic smart asses who found their standard bearer in Tyler Durden. Fight Club was a bit of a phenomenon upon its release and it seemed to speak to the the disenfranchised youth of Generation X in a way that nothing had before and being one such example, I hailed it as a masterpiece as did many others. Looking back, it's really far more a smug indie comedy than serious drama and I can't quite believe that anyone really took it seriously. It was for all intents and purposes the death knell of said generation even though we didn't really see it at …
