“8th and final rule: if this is you first night at fight club, you have to fight!”
– FIGHT CLUB directed by David Fincher
Genre : Thriller- Crime- Drama
Fight Club is a David Fincher’s movie released in 1999 based on the novel of the same name written by Chuck Palahniuk. Norton plays the unnamed protagonist, an « everyman » who is discontented with his white-collar job. He forms a “fight club” with soap maker Tyler Durden, played by Pitt, and they are joined by men who also want to fight recreationally. The film’s narrator attends support groups of all kinds as a way to “experience” something within his unfeeling, commercial existence.
Fincher intended Fight Club’s violence to serve as a metaphor for the conflict between a generation of young people and the value system of advertising.
