Marco’s review published on Letterboxd:
"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 night at Fight Club, you have to fight."
The first time i watched Fight Club, i thought it was gonna be about a "fight club".
Then i watched it, and holy moly. I was blown away. The movie flopped at the box office due to not enough advertising. Its become a cult classic since. Edward Norton plays the man with no name, Narrator. But in the movie they refer to him as Jack. Brad Pitt plays Tyler Durden. He represents manhood and purpose. Hes a charismatic leader. Hes the narrator's split personality, and is the man he cant be. Fight Club is one of those f- the society movies. Its about masculinity. Fight Club makes you think you have to fight to be real men. The narrators character is relatable. We're in his mind, and we're only seeing the perspective from Norton's character. And the first time i watched, i did not know about the twist. So thank god i wasnt spoiled, cause that was a shocking twist.
Fight Club has great performances. Edward Norton gives a fantastic performance as Narrator. Brad Pitt perfectly plays Tyler Durden. One of the most badass characters. Helena Bonham Carter is great. The direction by David Fincher is fantastic. I absolutely love the cinematography. Perfectly captures this movie. The script is fantastic. So many quotable lines, and many great scenes. The pacing and structure is good. I was hooked, and never felt bored.
A must watch. Third favourite Fincher movie.
