"'Fight Club' pulls you in, challenges your prejudices, rocks your world and leaves you laughing" (Rolling Stone). Brad Pitt ("12 Monkeys", "Seven"), Edward Norton ("Primal Fear," "American History X") and Helena Bonham Carter ("Mighty Aphrodite," "A Room With A View") turn in powerful "performances of which movie legends are made" (Chicago Tribune) in this action-packed hit. A ticking-time-bomb insomniac (Norton) and a slippery soap salesman (Pitt) channel primal male aggression into a shocking new form of therapy. Their concept catches on, with underground "fight clubs" forming in every town, until a sensuous eccentric (Bonham Carter) gets in the way and ignites an out-of control spiral toward oblivion.
Jack se repaît du malheur des autres. Un jour, il rencontre Tyler Durden. Tous deux décident de créer le Fight Club, une réunion secrète d'hommes venant pour se battre. Fight Club a créé une polémique sur son sujet, jugé irresponsable par certains et célébré par d'autres. Reste une oeuvre soutenue par les compositions exceptionnelles des deux acteurs principaux. Maîtrisé de bout en bout, Fight Club emploie également de nouvelles techniques cinématographiques. Le DVD offre une image superbe, très définie et un son en Dolby digital 5.1 au mieux de sa forme. --Pascal Gouberau -- Chronique Amazon.frSee all Product Description

Drama, 139 minutes
Directed by David Fincher
Starring Edward Norton, Brad Pitt and Helena Bonham Carter
Why do I like Fight Club? It seems to suggest that violence and anarchy are good things, but that's certainly not something I believe. I think it comes down to the dark comedy and the strong script, coupled with excellent performances from Norton and Pitt. This is a cool world to experience, but I wouldn't want to live in it.
The story seems perfectly traditional at first. We see Norton on a plane. He's referred to as The Narrator in the credits and seems to think of himself as Jack. He encounters Tyler Durden (Pitt) and takes his business card. Jack returns home to find that there's been an explosion in his apartment, so he calls Durden and eventually asks to stay at his house for a while. Durden is a cheerful, carefree lunatic who wants Jack to punch him. The two fight on the street and decide to recruit members and form Fight Club, believing that it's an expression of freedom.
Jack spends his free time visiting support groups. We see him hugging people with testicular cancer and all manner of diseases. He enjoys letting his inhibitions go and listening to the members speak about their illnesses. After a while, he becomes aware of Marla (Helena Bonham Carter). Like him, she's a tourist visiting the various support groups. He confronts her and they agree to attend different classes.
Durden encourages Jack to stop trying to live up to the expectations of other people. As a result, Jack becomes more assertive. He challenges the authority of his boss and stops worrying about his appearance and the latest IKEA catalog. He regularly shows up for work with fresh cuts and bruises. Jack finds that he enjoys his new image.Read more ›
Chuck Palahnuik's novel comes to life in the adept hands of director David Fincher (of Seven fame). It is no surprise that the scenes are slickly cool, the violence is of the "in your face" variety, and we are entertained despite our misgivings. The movie has some real "Momento" moments, so I won't try to delve into the story-line to risk giving any of those away. A truly fetching role is turned in by Helena Bonham Carter as Marla Singer a chain smoking barely hanging on to life love interest of Edward Norton's. Their chemistry and interplay is terrifically authentic and dead-on funny. Brad Pitt take the show though as Tyler Durden, an ultra-confident hipster that makes soap. The lines he and Norton toss back and forth are classics to be remembered and quoted in bars, around water coolers, at support groups.
"Fight Club" is an experience you owe yourself, if not for anything more than to ponder the state of society and what is truly important. I think if you see the movie out to the end and get past the violence, you may find this message though-provoking. You just may find yourself laughing along the way.
The message of the movie has stayed with me ever since I first watched it - it is a fantastic commentary on our consumerism-driven culture as well as our lack of originality as a whole and our fear of deviating from the path of least resistance. I may not be a guy, but sometimes I want to be Tyler Durden...I want to laugh at someone who deserves it, and question the status quo, and.....make soap.
This is a movie that one cannot judge based on someone else's opinion (although I have tried my best to provide a very biased opinion!). You have to watch it, with an open mind, and a sick sense of humour at your disposal (this movie is also funny as hell). Watch it, live it, love it.....but whatever you do, don't talk about it. That's the first rule.
I like the fact that the movie has so many layers. Its "in your face" but its also subtle. I'm watching it again and after about the 8th time, I still see details and nuances that I've missed before - but not because I haven't noticed them in a "oh gee, look at that" kind of way. I missed them because they were intentionally MADE hard to see. Difficult to understand? Not really, more in the way of "I've never seen that in a movie before so it can't be happening now" kind of way. Except in this movie, it IS being shown that way.
Lots and lots of scenes, situations, and dialog are just plain unexpected. Off the wall, yes. But also (I hate to use this word because it sounds so "film-class 101") profound. Yes, this movie has profound moments.
If you've become addicted to this movie like I have, you have your own favorite moments in the movie, and these define you and your character at times.
I like the way contrasting views on so many topics are expressed by the "dual starring personalities". The twist of just who these people Really are, well that remains there in the background, tweaking your brain cells. Tweaking MY brain cells, anyway.
If another movie supplants this one as my favorite, I'll return to this forum and alter my story, but otherwise, I'm sticking to it.
