Fight Club

Edward Norton and Brad Pitt: two sides of the cool coin, one controlled and sweet-talkin', the other, unruly and carefree. For David Fincher's concussive cult film, Norton plays a nameless everyman bored with his white-collar job and suffering from insomnia. When he meets Tyler Durden (Pitt), a soap salesman, the solution to his sleepless nights is apparently a knockout. The two form a bare-knuckle “fight club” for other dissatisfied bruisers and the underground arena goes viral. Fight Club rings with anticorporate, anticonsumerist anger. And Edward and Brad, the pugilistic alter egos? They are definitely joined at the hip.
