Fight Club Reviews

Movie Mezzanine

Fight Club may be iconic and technically proficient, but it's more distant than perhaps any film to attain "modern classic" status.

Anton Bitel
Scene 360

perhaps the most post-9/11 film to have been made pre-9/11, capturing perfectly both the stirring discontent of the Nineties and the madness (both geopolitical and especially economic) that would erupt globally in the decade to come.

Guardian

Fight Club jettisons its sense of humour 60 minutes in, and, so far from satirising the tiresome "crisis of masculinity" stuff sloshing around the airwaves either side of the Atlantic, the film simply endorses it.

Wildly inventive, exceptionally cast and undeniably controversial, there's an endless list of subtexts and viewpoints which will fuel student pub debates for years.

It is working American Beauty-Susan Faludi territory, that illiberal, impious, inarticulate fringe that threatens the smug American center with an anger that cannot explain itself, can act out its frustrations only in inexplicable violence.

Blistering, hallucinatory, often brilliant, the film by David Fincher is a combination punch of social satire and sociopathology.

Fight Club is an arresting, eventually appalling excursion into social satire by way of punishing violence.

A movie that wants to keep its audience unsettled from beginning to end.

We're meant to take the male bonding and the blood rituals as a protest against the sterility of corporate life and modern design, but Fincher's sadomasochistic kicks overwhelm any possible social critique.

where Taxi Driver sees the fallacy in canonizing Travis Bickle, Fight Club does it without irony.

November 29, 2010

The last great male-centric movie of the last millennium just arrived on a spectacular new Blu-ray disc for its 10th anniversary, providing the opportunity to relish every aspect of David Fincher's ultimate dissection of Gen-X masculinity. Fight Club

Slant Magazine

A complex, confused look at life in late-'90s America, David Fincher's blood-black comedy Fight Club remains one of the most divisive pictures of the past 20 years.

Fight Club is still today a definitive film, a statement as strong as any rock anthem and twice as packed with power chords.

One of the seminal films of the 1990s...just as darkly funny, epic, and psychically wrenching as ever. [Blu-ray]

"Fight Club" is a cinematic Hail-Mary pass from David Fincher that the audience desperately wants to catch.
