How much can you know about yourself if you’ve never been in a fight?
A depressed man (Edward Norton) suffering from insomnia meets a strange soap salesman named Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) and soon finds himself living in his squalid house after his perfect apartment is destroyed. The two bored men form an underground club with strict rules and fight other men who are fed up with their mundane lives. Their perfect partnership frays when Marla (Helena Bonham Carter), a fellow support group crasher, attracts Tyler’s attention.
The New York Times – “In an expertly shot and edited film spiked with clever computer-generated surprises, Fincher also benefits, of course, from marquee appeal. The teamwork of Norton and Pitt is as provocative and complex as it’s meant to be.” (full review here)
San Francisco Chronicle – “Look. The name of the movie is “Fight Club.” It’s got bare-knuckle fights in it. They’re violent. They’re bloody. Please don’t come out of “Fight Club” whining about how violent and bloody it is. Got it?” (full review here)
