Movie Review: "Fight Club" (1999)
At a time with young, striving director David Fincher, at age 36, bringing out the dead as the living alike with a personal, yet novel-adaptation-filtered, take on ultimate questions on the human condition, comes "Fight Club" to late to make waves at the international box office, going under as a highly-regarded, highly-revisited and highly-respected cinematic piece of art, when the main characters of just being "The Narrator" and his hit-and-run close-to-lazy, but downward-life-embracing friend Tyler Durden, up to ultra-narcisstic heights in motion picture history portrayed by actor Brad Pitt in its prime, when counterpart, fresh out of "American History X" boot-camping productions Edward Norton, keep close encounters with the enternal feminine performing character Marla Singer, here brought to justice by actress Helena Bonham Carter, when the high-end Hollywood budget embracing adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's book of 1996, which so famously filtered the parents-estranged "Generation X", when today's "Generation Y" catched the awareness of being more then just white-trash junk-pushing anarchists to the point-of-no-return; so then "Fight Club" must succeed as full-orchestra-playing, from camera-motion digital-extension-initiative cinematography by Jeff Cronenworth to finalizing kaleidoscopish montage sequence-editorials by endless-threads-cutter James Haygood, believed to be an alterego of director David Fincher himself; a cinematic masterpiece for everyone to discover in retrospective of Hollywood production season 1998/1999, when film-making directors had been put into place of vision by endeavoring producers as Arnon Milchan, Joel Silver and "8mm" (1999) producing Gavin Polone & Joel Schumacher, to the state of "anything is possible".
