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.

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

A controversial satire and a contemporary classic.

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.

Lurid, twisted, and violent. Not for kids.

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

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]

May also be yet another example of a book that was just fine as a book -- that didn't need to be made into a film.

You can call [it] irresponsible. Or you can call it the only essential Hollywood film of 1999.
