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.
November 27, 2017
Just when it's supposedly getting to grips with its theme, the movie goes utterly haywire and becomes yet another brainless, humourless bone-cruncher.

...capturing perfectly the stirring discontent of the 90s & the madness (geopolitical/economic) that would erupt globally in the decade to come. For in his love of anarchic (self-)destruction, Tyler shows the new Millennium through a glass darkly.

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.

Technically gorgeous... But it's such a wreck of tone and intellect.

Fight Club may be iconic and technically proficient, but it's more distant than perhaps any film to attain "modern classic" status.
July 2, 2013
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.
April 22, 2013
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
Wildly inventive, exceptionally cast and undeniably controversial, there's an endless list of subtexts and viewpoints which will fuel student pub debates for years.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
April 22, 2013
A controversial satire and a contemporary classic.
April 22, 2013
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.
April 22, 2013
Blistering, hallucinatory, often brilliant, the film by David Fincher is a combination punch of social satire and sociopathology.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 22, 2013
Fight Club is an arresting, eventually appalling excursion into social satire by way of punishing violence.
April 22, 2013
A movie that wants to keep its audience unsettled from beginning to end.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 22, 2013
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.
July 21, 2012
There's many levels of brilliance to this film, from the script to the acting to the cinematography to the overall directing.

May 11, 2012
This is American self-absorption at its finest.
April 22, 2011
A shrewd, scintillating work rooted in an investigation of varying degrees of masculinity and extremism.

December 14, 2010
Lurid, twisted, and violent. Not for kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 29, 2010
where Taxi Driver sees the fallacy in canonizing Travis Bickle, Fight Club does it without irony.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
