Fight Club - I am Jack's sense of indifference

Oct 16, 1999
Review by  
Rated a Helpful Review

Pros:Edward Norton is excellent, first 30 minutes of the movie is very good

Cons:end is disappointing, weird twist detracts from impact

I read lots of stuff about Fight Club before I saw the movie. That it had this deep insight on what is wrong with America today. That it was edgy, brutal, and disturbing. That Brad Pitt turns in a fine performance.

These three points, one at a time:

"You are not your khakis." That's what passes for deep insight these days. I already knew that.

Clockwork Orange, done almost 30 years ago, was much more violent and disturbing than this film. American History X was much more disturbing. A bunch of white males fighting each other in order to free themselves temporarily from the shackles of American society doesn't do it for me.

I can't decide if Brad Pitt's performance was pretty good or really bad. All I know is that he played about the same character in 12 Monkeys and Se7en.
