João Caetano’s review published on Letterboxd:
Fight Club is a 1999 drama film. It is directed by David Fincher and stars Brad Pitt and Edward Norton. It is based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk.
Fight Club is about an insomniac man who looks for compassion in support groups. Until the day he meets Tyler Durden, the man that will change his life forever.
When it was first released, the critics didn't like it. They were expecting much more. However, later it was considered by many as the best film ever made. They realized it wasn't just about a bunch of guys fighting. It was about much, much more. It was about fighting depression. It was about self-esteem. It was about the conflict we all have with ourselves. It is a critique to consumerism and a big fuck you to society. It teaches us how to live. It is a beautiful and unique masterpiece that will make you feel alive.
