this monkey's gone to heaven...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fight Club (Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
I can't believe its taken me this long to get this movie on DVD. It blew me away when I saw it on initial release (seven years ago, can you believe it) but this is definitely one to own on DVD. Why? Because you can watch it over and over again, digging the sheer virtuosity of the performances, photography, music and above all, the brilliant script, which is so incredibly rich it has lost NOTHING in the translation. In my opinion this is one of the few films that is even better than the book, due to the beautifully twisted visual style of Fincher, not to mention the remarkable performances of Norton and Pitt, particularly the latter, who reaches a career peak here. I cannot wait to shove this into the machine again and settle back for more yucks and thrills. This film is a laugh a minute. In fact, its a comedy above all else. You'll only start to pick up on some of the gems in the second or third viewing (a personal favourite is the Norton/Bonham-Carter exchange about the thrift store wedding dress), but of course the classics - you are not your khakis - are all there as well. Do not hesitate to pick this up, at this price it is a world-class bargain and essential to any DVD collection worth a damn. The other classic that goes great with this is, of course, 12 Monkeys, also featuring Mr Pitt in another fantastic performance. They are a great pair. All together now: "his name is Robert Paulson, his name is Robert Paulson..."
