My third watch.
I've recently been reading Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man, and this movie honestly has a weirdly large number of similarities, in terms of character, some plot elements, and themes, to the novel, obviously outside of the conversation about race that is central to the book. If I rewatch this anytime soon, maybe I'll go for a long, essay-style review comparing and discussing the two.
Well anyway, this movie's still kinda just one of the greatest. I'm thinking my top 25 or even 20 of all time at this point. It's so cool and way more profound and poignant than I think people give it credit for. Pitt and Norton are phenomenal and it's still Fincher's finest achievement in my eyes. Happy belated birthday to one of the greatest directors of all time.
