Fight Club

Fight Club ★★★★★

20th Century Fox. Blu-Ray

"Welcome to Fight Club. The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club! Third rule of Fight Club: someone yells "stop!", goes limp, taps out, the fight is over. Fourth rule: only two guys to a fight. Fifth rule: one fight at a time, fellas. Sixth rule: No shirts, no shoes. Seventh rule: fights will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule: if this is your first time at Fight Club, you have to fight"

It doesn't matter what mood I'm in or how busy I am, if Fight Club is on I watch until it's over, no questions asked and even though time after time I know every detail and the twist is coming a mile away, I can't help but feel a shock in my bones. Finchers film is a true masterpiece of sheer delight, it's a film that you shouldn't want to watch but even if you cover your eyes you must peek through the gaps of your fingers in order to see. The craft is phenomenal, use of camera, script, production design are all layered with stunning detail. Performances are truly fantastic with Pitt never being better and Norton showcasing fantastic range. Bonham Carter and Meat Loaf are also fantastic with the latter deserving an Academy Award nomination for his performance.
