"Now a question of etiquette; as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?"

Edward Norton gives a spectacular performance as a man who hates his life! We meet the depressed narrator Jack, who works at a car company and has insomnia. He hasn't slept in approximately half a year and eventually he finds solace in self-help groups where he can let go and cry until he's out of tears, thus stopping the insomnia.

Everything's fine until another faker Marla (Bonham Carter) starts showing up at the meetings (even the ones for testicular cancer) which disrupt Jack’s pattern of breaking down and crying. So once again, he cannot go back to sleep at night.

Jack is sent by his boss on a business trip and on one of the flights he meets the mysterious Tyler Durden(Brad Pitt), a guy who spends his life drifting around; making soap from human fat with whom he starts Fight Club, a secret club in which men beat the snot out of each other trying to prove and find themselves.

Eventually Fight Club evolves becoming what Tyler calls Project Mayhem. From here on out the film really twists you around with an incredible climax that is jaw dropping. Anyways, this is a great movie and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a movie that is far different from the humdrums of modern film.
