I have been doing this blog since January, and sometimes I forget that I have not reviewed some of my favorites--the most compelling, most awesome movies that I have ever seen--that deserve much more praise than just being recognized by my little ol' blog. BUT, they still deserve my praise so here it goes for Fight Club:
Chuck Palahniuk. Death. Life. Consumerism. Greed. Class Warfare. Schiezophrenia. Love. Envy. Rebellion. The Man.
If you haven't seen this movie, get off this computer and go watch it now. Seriously. Come back after you have been completely sucked in, hate the government and your life, and throw away all your name brand stuff.
I know that doesn't exactly sound like the greatest movie of all time, but it is probably top 10 in my book, maybe higher if someone was torturing me and really forcing me to choose. And I really don't life violence in movie (or life in general).
This movie will make you think, make you question your place in the world, and what role you are playing in our American Dream rat race. All you need to know is this brilliant speech, delivered by Brad Pitt at his absolute hottest hands down (total disclosure: I know this might sound like the reason I love this movie, but I would have loved this movie even if Brad Pitt's character was played by Meatloaf--who is also in the movie. Seriously. Although it may not have been quite as downright delicious.):
