A ticking-time-bomb insomniac (Norton) and a slippery soap salesman (Pitt) channel primal male aggression into a shocking new form of therapy. Their concept catches on, with underground "fight clubs" forming in every town, until a sensuous eccentric (Bonham Carter) gets in the way and ignites an out-of control spiral toward oblivion.

 

"An outrageous mixture of brilliant technique, puerile philosophizing, trenchant satire and sensory overload, Fight Club is the most incendiary movie to come out of Hollywood in a long time."
- Newsweek
"Blistering, hallucinatory, often brilliant, the film by David Fincher is a combination punch of social satire and sociopathology."
- Philadelphia Inquirer


"A controversial satire and a contemporary classic."
- Film4
