  • Perhaps it is postmodern filmmaking, whatever that means. In any case, Fight Club remains the ugliest, most inhuman film since Natural Born Killers.

    April 7, 2020 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • The movie demands a certain attention and is not easily dismissed, but there is something deeply unsettling about a work that uncritically espouses brutality as a function of alienation and nonconformity.

    October 15, 2019 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    March 6, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Oh, for the time when men were men and were encouraged to beat the tar out of one another. That's the world "Fight Club" pines for.

    October 15, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    April 22, 2013 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    This movie was crazy. Undoubtably worth watching by everyone at least once. Edward Norton's narration grows on you throughout the movie and so does his character.

    Great great film. Fight Club is not this generic violent film, it's actually a very intelligently written film that you must watch. Oops I talked about Fight Club... all jokes aside, check this film out!

    Overrated. Finch provided a revolutionary direction and production value with outstanding cast like Carter, Pitt and Norton, but the message of manhood was not addressed properly. The anarchism was twisted with a sense of anti capitalist, anti establishment setting instead of the desire to escape the urbanized environment and individualism. However I did like his expression of dangers in collectivism. The post modernism is open for debate, whichever interpretation could work.

    David Fincher's adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's acclaimed novel is dark, unorthordox and sickly in many ways. Fight Club presents a superb case of strong performances from Norton, Pitt & Bonham Carter along with an intricate presentation, making this a cult film that resonates in today's age of film-making. 4/5
