Flick Pick: Fight Club

Fight Club
(20th Century Fox, 1999)

Chuck Palahniuk's bleeding edge exploration of schizophrenia as sanity, and anarchy as creation, starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton as each other, with Helena Bonhma Carter the sole relief to a two-hour-plus testosterone-fueled mayhem fest. The clarity of Brad Pitt's alter ego is highlighted by the self-destruction of the Edward Norton host, in an instruction manual of Sticking It To The Man. Even if you hate this movie, it's like watching a train wreck you can't look away from. And then...
oh crap, we're not supposed to talk about Fight Club.
