It’s been some time since my last All Time Fav feature…And I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the birthday of Mr. Film Buff (aka drainpip).
Fight Club was directed by David Fincher, screenplay adaptation by Jim Uhls and the novel was written by Chuck Palahniuk. It may come as a surprise to some that Fight Club is an All Time Favorite of mine, as it surprised the hell out of me…Put all the violent fight scenes and mixed reviews aside…In my eyes Fight Club is not just some mindless testosterone driven guy flick, it is a dark intelligent film with style…What’s not to like? And good lord Edward Norton is yummy!But seriously I don’t just like the film because I can lick Edward Norton clean…The soundtrack can not be ignored, produced by the LA duo The Dust Brothers (Michael Simpson and John King). The two are most famous for their work with the Beastie Boys and Beck, but they have had their hands in a slew of other projects as well. The Dust Brothers assembled the perfect soundtrack to accompany this deviously dark film…If the mixed reviews of this film steered you away from checking it out I recommend giving it a chance…It’s a mind-fuck but a good one none the less.

    This one really hit me hard… I think maybe the timing of it in my life was spot-on perfect where I almost needed to see this and hear this in order to make it through the craziness I was experiencing. It is a testosterone filled guy flick in a way, but if you dig a little bit deeper, it’s a weird sort of not-well-thought-out philosophy, and then if you dig deeper… well you get it.

    I absorbed it all… hell I even made a fan film. I miss the soundtrack… gonna have to go find it again.

    Evolve indeed.

    Thanks for the tribute :)

    Another film you love that I love too. Edward Norton and Brad Pitt have never been better. If you think this film is just about fighting, then you missed the point

    Superb film!

    And it made me want to read ‘Fight Club’ and since then I’ve been hooked on all of Palahniuk’s books. Sure the quality dips in a couple of them and you can really tell his style but he is seriously an amazing author.

    This is one of those movies for me. There are sometimes I can’t watch it, but I absolutely love this movie!
