'It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.'
What a great spontaneous decision rewatching 'Fight Club' tonight was. Although I have seen this movie for a dozen times, this film doesn't lose any of its intensity. On the contrary: With every time watching this classic, there are new things I can experience and that makes it so worthy rewatching it.
It's the moment, when the the movie starts and The Dust Brothers kick in. It's taking only a second and you're totally in this movie. I don't know any other movie, where I feel the same.
What's following in the next 139 minutes is just perfect. The look of this film is so great. The cinematogrpahy couldn't be better. There is a vast number of quotes, that are worth thinking about. But when you're in the world of Fight Club, there's just no time for thinking. I think there is no need in saying anything about the acting. What Edward Norton is doing here, is nothing more than breathtaking. And so is Brad Pitt doing. His best role. Seriously. And of course, Helena Bonham Carter. I think every role couldn't have been casted better.
I'm sorry, Tyler, I had to break the first rule of Figh Club. But I had to say that.
