Very special movie... at times resembles the magic of films like Memento... and yet not at all. And speaking of a mindfuck... Topper!

“I found freedom. Losing all hope was freedom.”

Fight Club is a tough, crazy, hallucinatory, humorous and socially critical masterpiece by David Fincher, which actually only gets better the more you watch it. The atmosphere, the stylish images, the script, Fincher's energetic direction, the music, etc. It is all done so ingeniously and with an eye for detail that your eyes and ears are not enough to admire and register all the visual violence.

The story around The Narrator (Norton), who lives an empty life with a meaningless job, no girlfriend and no friends, is very well put together, and it is delivered with a lot of black humor and a touch of drama. Unable to sleep, The Narrator sleepwalks through the day, but this changes with two events. First, he finds out that support groups for people who are seriously ill help him sleep. Second, he meets Tyler Durden (Pitt), who introduces him to the world of fight clubs. The scenes around the support groups are laced with melancholy humor and are among my favorite scenes in the film. But the focus of the film is of course on the fight clubs. Ordinary men fighting each other just to feel something. This continues to excel until real criminal activity takes place. Norton and Pitt play the roles of their lives, and Helena Bonham Carter is also formidable. The last part is a frantic roller coaster where all the puzzle pieces fall into place, and the final scene with the music of the Pixies remains a brilliant ending.
