Fight Club 
Who woulda thought
4/4 stars

Fight Club is, quite simply, flawless. The casting is perfection, the acting exquisite, the humor totally unexpected, and the rollercoaster ride of a plot is intense, thrilling and utterly unpredictable. When you watch Fight Club for the first time, it is impossible to anticipate what will happen next. Other than that you will definitely see it again. And again. And again. It will have an impact on you. It may even leave you literally breathless. The fact that many reviewers have felt the need to explain Fight club, variously, as a morality play, an existential masterpiece, a socio-economic commentary, an exercise in gratuitous violence, a bizarre hetero romance, a festival of homo-eroticism, etc, attests to the truly profound effect Fight Club has on nearly everyone who sees. Personally, I prefer to regard Fight Club as exactly what it is: an incredible, superb piece of entertainment, creative, original, unique, engrossing, puzzling, hilarious, unpretentious and, oddly enough, quite charming. It is unlike anything else, including "Clockwork," where the brutality is sexual foreplay joyfully inflicted on hapless victims. By contrast, the violence in Fight Club exists for its own sake alone, and it is joyfully sought and entered into by the participants, with no overt sexual overtones. For whatever reason, they ENJOY it. The pain, the bruises, the audience, the secrecy - all of it. And the pleasure and release the find in the fighting, being incommprehensible to the vast majority, is undoubtedly the reason why so many need to find an underlying theme. After all, how can all these average guys be so enamoured with getting pounded several times a week? I think is a mystery. And it should stay that way.
