Fight Club (1999)
It is shocking that on the endless list of film’s I have seen, Fight Club did not appear on that list until this past weekend. The film, a favorite amongst many, can be found listed as the number ten film, on IMDb’s top 250 films. Its director, David Fincher, is equally admired for other films such as Seven (1995) and the US remake of the popular novel, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011). Fincher is known to be fearless in his films, and this can be easily seen in Fight Club. The director’s “hidden easter eggs,” make the film interactive and stand out amongst others. Not only was the film well written, but the character development and acting was flawless. Brad Pitt’s realization on the most well known character, Tyler Durden, was spot-on; at the same time, performances by Helena Bonham Carter, and Edward Norton stood out. This film is a must see, please do not wait as long as I did to do so.

My Rating: A-
”Fight Club” is rated R (Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian). It includes bloody fights, grisly touches, sexual situations and nudity, profanity and assorted intentional gross-out shocks, including the rendering of human fat into soap.
The first rule of fight club is: You do not talk about fight club.
