Fight Club

Fight Club(1999)

A great film, definitely one of David Fincher's best. I've only seen it twice, but each time, it's been a rush. I love the characters and the actors who do such a great job with their roles, especially Brad Pitt. I love how visceral it is and how ahead of its time it was back in 1999. I love the plot and how twisted and smart it is. However, my favorite thing about it are the small details. For example, this movie has one of my all-time favorite scenes from any film, and it isn't even a major scene. Right before the "rules of Fight Club speech" as Tyler and the Narrator are walking into the bar, we get the long tracking shot of them making their way down to the club. As this is going on, Tom Waits' "Goin' Out West" is blaring in the bar. Not many people know this song, but it makes this scene absolutely badass and takes it to a whole other level.

Anyways, I'm done rambling. Bottom line, if you haven't seen "Fight Club", fix that. It's definitely worth it.
