Wesley R. Ball’s review published on Letterboxd:
You are not a special flower.
David Fincher is my favorite director of all time. I'm seriously considering moving Fight Club up as my favorite film of his, possibly my favorite of all time as well. Everything about Fight Club is just absolutely brilliant.
You think, on the outside, it would just be a boxing or an underground fighting film, but Fight Club is about so much more than just fighting. It's about order, chaos, society, organization, disorder, fighting the system. It's messages are so 90's in their substance, but it feels like they could still be applied to today.
Fight Club is a brilliant social commentary, and a brutal, twisted thriller at the same time. Its anti-social content and overall subliminal message could still apply to today's world, and that is where its brilliance lies. Fight Club is a modern cult classic that will be remembered for generations to come.
