David Fincher United States, 1999

Jonathan Kelsall's rating of the film Fight Club

A satire of capitalism, consumerism and social isolation wrapped in a big ball of complete chaos and mayhem. Everything we've come to expect and conform to for most people in their 30s, a good little robot fitting into the ideals of societies structure and Fight Club places it under a spotlight highlighting the pointless meaning of it all presented in microscope closeups, anarchist characters and split personalities.
