This review is from: Fight Club  [DVD] (DVD)
A dark, moody, disturbing and really gripping film, with some great quotes. Ed Norton is absolutely awesome as the 'office monkey' who hits rock bottom spiritual-bankcruptcy as his very being is crushed beneath his soulless existence. Brad Pitt is great as his quirky, twitchy journey-companion.
The whole thing is a very dramatic alternative take on Martha Stout's 'Myth of Sanity' and also is an oblique commentary on the human condition and the edge of the abyss to which he has brought himself.
As others have probably noted, it ends with a spectacular twist. Also, the film stands rewatching in light of knowing what happens at the end, you can then spot all kinds of quirks and anomalies throughout the film that now make sense. Fantastic!
