Fight Club

Lists: Drama, Dark comedy, Martial Arts films

Brief Synopsis: "A ticking-time-bomb insomniac and a slippery soap salesman channel primal male aggression into a shocking new form of therapy. Their concept catches on, with underground "fight clubs" forming in every town, until an eccentric gets in the way and ignites an out-of-control spiral toward oblivion."

Jim Carrier97 - If you haven't seen this, turn the rock over that you're living under & watch. A cult classic that HAS to be seen. Absolutely brilliant!

Bryan Lienesch87 - The first rule of Fight Club? Watch it time and time again.
Jester Smiles85 - I love this movie. I can't quite pin point why I can't give this movie a 9, but I can't. Still, this movie is fantastic, and looking back at the theme of the movie, having lived in both an economic high and an economic low, is fascinating.
Drezzy85 - The movie gets a lot of flack nowadays due to the massive cult fanbase that arose around it, mostly with people pointing out that its message of anti-consumerism is shallow, but I feel they completely miss the point. Fincher's adaptation of the book is ABOUT being shallow and lacking depth leading to the mass consumerism and quick rejection of it after one random stranger (in this case, a man with legitimate mental issues) tells you otherwise. Look at it from the perspective of how simple it is for angry people to be fooled into madness and the movie works even better than it did prior.
