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.

...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.

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
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.
April 22, 2013
Blistering, hallucinatory, often brilliant, the film by David Fincher is a combination punch of social satire and sociopathology.

This is American self-absorption at its finest.

Lurid, twisted, and violent. Not for kids.

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

November 26, 2009
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

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.

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

[A] bold, inventive, sustained adrenaline rush of a movie...

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.
