David Fincher's <i>Fight Club</i> brought a new meaning to controversy and the ideas of financial destruction. Due to the past terrorists attacks, this film will not be able to be released, thats what I love about it. It shows a man going through a period of his life where he can: keep working in a dead end job or take a risk, and change everything. The film comes w/ amazing features, great digital transfer, great sound, nothing to complain. I bought this DVD in 2000 and Im not yet done looking through it. A must have for every person w/ a DVD Player. Period

-George quote

Wow...thats about the only way to describe this movie. Even if you dont like the movie (for reasons I can't begin to believe), you have to give David Fincher a lot of credit for an absolutely fantastic job directing this flick. Fight Club is an in-your-face attack on modern commercialism and materialism. With a mind-blowing story line and an all-star cast, there is no reason any movie lover does not have this already. Those who dismissed this movie in poor reviews just didnt catch the point of Fight Club. Its not about violence, its about society. Watch it, love it.

Best Film of 1999

by on 12/22/1999

For all of you out there who enjoy originality in their film, 'Fight Club' is clearly the way to go. The story revolves around the unlikely friendship of two dissolousioned young men who start a rather 'physical' men's club in order to release the stress of modern day living. The story is amusing and entertaining and anyone with a love of good dialogue will find no shortage here. Fight Club is a film about anarchy, consumerism, and male bonding and pokes as much fun at itself as it does the modern world. Check it out, you won't be dissapointed. Read More

My favorite!

by on 12/26/1999

This has become my favorite movie... beating out Pulp Fiction. If you like a little suspense, a little different story line and a fast pace you need to check this out. David Fincher directs who brought us The Game, and Seven. Nuff' said! Read More

Editors Note
Note FIGHT CLUB is narrated by a lonely, unfulfilled young man (Edward Norton) who finds his only comfort in feigning terminal illness and attending disease support groups. Hopping from group to group, he encounters another pretender, or "tourist," the morose Marla Singer (Helena Bonham Carter), who immediately gets under his skin. However, while returning from a business trip, he meets a more intriguing character--the subversive Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). They become fast friends, bonding over a mutual disgust for corporate consumer-culture hypocrisy. Eventually, the two start Fight Club, which convenes in a bar basement where angry men get to vent their frustrations in brutal, bare-knuckle bouts. Fight Club soon becomes the men's only real priority; when the club starts a cross-country expansion, things start getting really crazy. ^Like Tyler Durden himself, director David Fincher's FIGHT CLUB, based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk, is startlingly aggressive and gleefully mischievous as it skewers the superficiality of American pop culture. Outstanding performances by Norton and Pitt are supported by a razor-sharp script and an arsenal of stunning visual effects that include computer animation and sleight-of-hand editing. One of the most unique films of the late 20th century, FIGHT CLUB is a pitch-black comedy of striking intensity.
Plot Summary
Summary David Fincher's adrenaline-fueled adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel is a satirical, absurdist romp highlighted by the director's edgy visual flair.

ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review With its kinetic style, visceral approach, compelling storyline, and powerful social message, Fight Club makes a commanding case to be considered the '90s version of A Clockwork Orange. In a time when so few motion pictures leave an impact, Fight Club refuses to be ignored or dismissed. The experience lingers, demanding to be pondered and considered, and, unlike 95% of modern-day thrillers, there is a great deal here to think about and argue over. Fight Club presents an overload of thought-provoking material that works on so many levels as to offer grist for the mills of thousands of reviews, feature articles, and post-screening conversations.
