“This is your life and it’s ending one minute at a time.”
Greetings, movie lovers. This week, we hit David Fincher’s film “Fight Club.” Is it just an anarchic, pugilistic sensation or is Fincher really working at tapping into a dark zeitgeist affecting the average person at the turn of the century? Join us as we talk about this tale of an everyman narrator struggling to find sense in his Ikea life and how his dark counterpart, Tyler Durden, helps him find himself. We hit on the brilliant performances by Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, as well as the always wonderful Helena Bonham Carter. We discuss the message Fincher is saying and how this is, possibly, the only real film that Fincher’s made that is more than just a genre film of some sort. Listen in, and let us know what you think of this wild ride!
