It is simply one of the best put together films in popular culture. It has a twisting, clever plot, a fresh narrative, great dialogue and a central cast that exude charisma. I don't think its adolescent or immature in the least - it speaks to that part of us all that can't quite accept the rigid farce of our modern lives. An ancient Myth for the modern age.
Overall, the movie boasted some superficially neat plot mechanics (the body snatchers stuff, the Jekyll/Hyde stuff), but I'm kind of underwhelmed. I've seen the body as a limit handled much better in other pieces (Cronenberg, for instance). And I've come across death and immateriality in enough other philosophies by now that I'm not really fazed by Fight Club's sophistry on those topics. This is best for teens.
This film offers such an intelligent discussion of both consumerism and toxic masculinity as flawed methods of claiming an identity (because both force you to give up your individuality). While I wish certain characters were more developed, I love this movie just the way it is. Every detail of every frame feels so deliberate that I notice something new every time I see it.
although I could be very easily accused of being too biased (read: too much of a passionate communist) to accurately review any feature with an anti-consumerist message, this still holds its place as one of my most beloved pictures of my mid-teens, which is not to say it is brilliant - some aspects of it are blatantly overdone and it doesn't take responsibility for the ideology it gestures towards
This week Ii reviewed the film Fight Club directed by David Fincher. The movie is about a young man who is upset with his mundane day to day existence develops an alter ego with a taste for violence and fighting. Throughout the movie this alter ego goats him into doing more and more dangerous things including joining a fight club hence the name of the movie.Ultimately if you love fighting/drama this film is for you.
I'm not sure where I stand on this one, I mean between Meatloaf having enormous boobs and everything else that happens I was a little lost. I enjoyed the film and it was, as loads of people have put it, a stylistic and interesting take on representation of schizophrenia and multiple personality disorders, and I would watch it again one day, but not for a long old time. In saying that, closing with Pixies was ace.
