Fight Club

Tucson Weekly

DIRECTED BY: David Fincher

REVIEWED: 11-01-99

Brad Pitt plays id to Edward Norton's ego in this vaguely experimental film about men who come together to beat the snot out of each other. Forming their "Fight Clubs" in every major city of the U.S., they get out male aggression and find manly role models while plotting the downfall of society and encouraging convenience store clerks to go to veterinary school. Kind of like if Ingmar Bergman made a film adaptation of Nikolai Gogol's The Nose, but died in the middle, so the studio gave it to Spike Lee to finish, provided he channel the spirit of Sam Peckinpah. You know, like that.
