Fight Club really might be the victim of its own hype. The film managed to perfectly capture how populist masculine resentment of the status quo can be corrupted by charismatic cults of personalities that manage to gain followers in every strata of society. Those with a 'burn it all down!' mentality today should see this movie as a cautionary tale, lest they too end up being brainwashed foot soldiers of some Tyler
This Outing by David Fincher is one for the ages... The dirty secret revelation of Fight Club is its best comedies of the decade. This is one hell of a ride that takes you to places that will blow your mind, disturb you all along but none the less would linger in your mind even long after you've watched it.
El club de la pelea presenta el vasto vacío de la existencia moderna, plagado de valores superficiales, consumismo desenfrenado, vacío de significado, sentimiento y vida misma, de una manera ingeniosa e irónicamente orientada al consumidor. El club de la pelea explora las soluciones para la verdadera existencia del sonambulismo que plaga la vida moderna.
Of course it is a movie about a depressed loner tied up as a corporate pawn, but who wants to be freed from the shackles of modern materialistic life - so much so that it fucks him up. Absolutely loved the narration based storytelling style - fast, crisp and sharp. The acting was fantastic and the pacing set the tone and kept the mood on right through the different acts. Such a thrill ride. Great fun!
Was among my favorites during young adult male years. It has touched various contemporary relevant dynamics like capitalism, consumerism, class-war etc. But I realized that before being anything else it's utterly misogynist movie. I've seen pornos where women get more respect and get less objectified than in this movie. What tantalizes young adults in the movie can be described as superficial rants and puppy fights.
Just like Brad Pitt, this film did not age well. It is definitely entertaining but it's all bark no bite for me. Yes, great topics but where's the depth? Norton's performance is the highlight of this film. The core of this film is allegedly the deconstruction of the toxic male ego but somehow it ended up fetishizing the idea of Tyler and reinforcing the toxicity itself, without making any important statements
Clube da Luta é uma jornada psicótica pelo existencialismo. A trama acompanha um mundo obcecado por bens materiais e pelas propagandas chamativas. Dessa forma, o filme consegue fincar sua crítica ao consumismo e ao sistema capitalista em geral. Ao mesmo tempo que faz críticas a alienação, quando mostra um personagem como Tyler, um homem que se apresenta como um libertador, enquanto aliena pessoas mais vulneráveis
