Fight Club (1999)

As one might expect from a David Fincher film, 'Fight Club' is gritty, stylish and unrelenting; the performances uniformly excellent. Unfortunately it suffers from a number of story issues that strain believability (even in the surreal, hyper-violent context of the film). The most problematic of these revolve around the central "twist" which, even if one were to ignore its predictability, resolves itself in an unforgivably nonsensical matter. Superficially, however, the film is an effective beast, and the ending, despite the nagging plot-holes, is strangely triumphant. Some might even call it joyous.
