Synopsis:

An insomniac office worker and a devil-may-care soap maker form an underground fight club that transforms into a violent revolution.

My mini-review:

Fight Club is one of the most absorbing and fascinating films I have ever seen. Directed by the visionary David Fincher, the film is an aggressive tale about consumerism. Led by two quality performances from Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, along with a memorable Helena Bonham Carter, Fight Club is a film that is hard to forget, especially it's mind-blowing ending. Very highly recommended!
