Rating: 3.5/4 -- Filmmaker David Fincher has, perhaps notoriously, infused Fight Club with a decidedly off-kilter sort of vibe that's reflected in its various attributes... Full Review

...FIGHT CLUB is bold, intelligent and thrillingly innovative... -- 5 out of 5 stars

Jun 1, 2000
An outrageous mixture of brilliant technique, puerile philosophizing, trenchant satire and sensory overload, Fight Club is the most incendiary movie to come out of Hollywood in a long time. It's a mess, but one worth fighting about. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- The film's tongue is far too firmly in its cheek at all points of its discourse to ever take its characters' actions too much at face value. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Mr Loaf was never better on screen than as the ill-fated, big-hearted Bob Paulson, the only warm character in a cold, cold movie. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- Pitt dominates the screen every second he's on it, and it simultaneously represents his weirdest, funniest and most charismatic role of his career. Full Review

Product Description:

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 Synopsis:

David Fincher's adrenaline-fueled adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel is a satirical, absurdist romp highlighted by the director's edgy visual flair.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: October 15, 1999.
  • FIGHT CLUB premiered at the CMJ Film Festival on September 21, 1999.
  • Filmed in Los Angeles, California.
  • Director David Fincher shot over 1,500 reels of film, which is over three times the usual amount of footage used for most feature-length films.
  • The house on Paper Street was specifically designed for the film and built from the ground up in a deserted industrial zone.
  • Edward Norton's character is actually unnamed, but is sometimes referred to as "Jack," which comes from a medical book he reads in the Paper Street house. In the book, internal body organs speak as characters, saying things like "I am Jack's colon." As the movie progresses, the narrator makes up his own statements such as "I am Jack's raging bile duct."
  • Subliminal images are present throughout the film. Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) flashes onto the screen in four split-second appearances before actually encountering Edward Norton's character. Tyler also briefly appears in a television ad (for an upscale restaurant) that "Jack" watches from his hotel room. Later, Tyler is shown splicing pornographic footage into family films while working in a projection booth. At the end of the film, there's a quick shot of one of these images.
  • Brad Pitt removed the cap from his chipped front tooth for certain scenes.
  • Visual effects supervisor Kevin Scott Mack (who designed the elaborate title sequence) appears as a terrified passenger in the scene where the narrator imagines his plane ripping apart in a mid-air collision.
  • In the house on Paper Street, there's an issue of Movieline magazine with Drew Barrymore on the cover. Barrymore costarred with Norton in Woody Allen's EVERYONE SAYS I LOVE YOU.
  • In addition to the Dust Brothers' score, the film also features the songs "Goin' Out West" by Tom Waits and "Where Is My Mind'" by the Pixies.
  • The Online Film Critics Society named FIGHT CLUB Best DVD, Best DVD Special Features, and Best DVD Commentary; Entertainment Weekly named it the second best DVD of 2000.
