Ten Years of Fight Club


A decade a go Fight Club was released in the US & Canada, a month later in the UK. Based on Chuck Palanuik's novel of the same name I think it's still my favourite film. I really enjoyed the book and the film is equally good - my only slight regret is that I didn't see it at the cinema, only getting the opportunity on DVD six months later. One of those timely films at the end of a century, and surely one of the better films not to win best picture at the Oscars - no complaints at American Beauty getting it instead (ahead of Cider House Rules, The Green Mile, The Insider, The Sixth Sense)

Some day soon it'll be time to dust down the DVD and give it another watch.

  1. I love that film as well. Great comment on masculinity in the early 21st century.
