Fight Club

Genre: Drama, Comedy; Starring: Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, Helena Bonham Carter, Jared Leto, Meat Loaf; Director: David Fincher; Author: Jim Uhls; Release Date Wide: 10/15/1999; Runtime (in minutes): 139; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Fox 2000 Pictures

David Fincher’s brutal shock show floats the idiotic premise that a modern-day onslaught of girly pop-cultural destinations (including IKEA and support groups) has resulted in a generation of spongy young men unable to express themselves as fully erect males. And that the remedy lies in beating the crap out of each other. Brad Pitt stars as a brute who introduces a nameless company man (Edward Norton) to the catharsis of slugging and stomping. If, as Fincher has said, this is supposed to be funny, then the joke’s on us. D
