fight club (1999)
Official tagline: Mischief. Mayhem. Soap.
Chuck Palahniuk (novel)
Helena Bonham Carter
Here I feel I must concede to the official tagline. It rocks, so I'm
not going to mess with it. I think I was one of the lucky people
who got to watch this film without knowing what the twist
was. I am very happy about that. It seems like there have been a lot
of movies with twists these days - and they have all managed to keep
my interest while doing so.
I think that both Brad Pitt and Edward Norton did a fantastic job.
Brad Pitt is at his best when he plays people who are a little "off".
I like Norton's rants about things - especially the IKEA nesting instinct.
If you've been to IKEA, you understand. The dialogue is fantastic and
fast-paced. What can I say - the movie was a lot better than I thought
it would be!
