Movie Summary

Director:
David Fincher
Released:
1999
Rating:
R
Fight Club is the acclaimed, generation defining, 1999 adaptation of the incendiary Chuck Palahniuk bestseller. Edward Norton (Primal Fear, The Italian Job) plays the unnamed narrator living a soulless, white collar existence of material obsession in Everycity, when his house and mind is blown by a mysterious stranger named Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt, Inglorious Basterds, Seven, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) who seeks to unleash Norton's inner anarchic spirit and free him of his robot thinking. What first starts as lively diatribe about the true nature of men and what they should be becomes externalized, when the two form an underground boxing club, they dub Fight Club for any and everyone seeking to feel alive again through ritualized, violent beatings. As more and more maladjusted males gravitate toward this club, their focus expands to acts of aggression against the city and system that is stripping them of their manhood slowly but surely, and culminates in a surprise reveal that changes viewers' perceptions of what they have just seen.moreless

    "The first rule of Fight Club From director David Fincher comes the modern cult classic Fight Club; a smart, provocative film that tackles modern culture and social issues in a daring and innovative way. The cast is outstanding; Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, and Helena Bonham Carter all deliver seminal performances. And, enough cannot be said about how brilliantly crafted the film is; it takes several viewings to absorb it all and really appreciate how well-thought-out everything is. Fight Club offers insightful social satire while delivering an intense and captivating drama with an amazing plot twist.moreless
