Fight Club

David Fincher / DE, US, 1999 / 139 min.

David Fincher’s tense thriller – based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk – about men breaking out of their humdrum office existence. Bare knuckle fighters in search of masculinity.

poster Fight Club (David Fincher, US/DE 1999)
“How much can you know about yourself if you've never been in a fight?” To answer that question, disaffected office clerk Jack (Edward Norton) and oddball Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) set up an illegal fight club. Unlike the impresarios of bare knuckle boxing of the 1930s, Jack and Tyler want to scrap it out for honour, courage, guts and masculinity.

The sleepy existence of the feeble-bodied office clerk is due for an overhaul. It appears there are plenty of young men who want to kiss boredom goodbye by beating the daylights out of each other. Suddenly, fight clubs are booming.
