There are truly many aspects of the picture that make it so good. It is a solid film in
all categories. The amount of thought that went into Fight Club is nothing short of
astonishing. Fight Club takes a complex story and makes it real for the viewer like few
other films can. As the viewer, you experience the story through the eyes of the main
character (the film Memento, although completely different, also uses this technique).
This has caused many to misunderstand the film because we see the movie through the eyes
of a character with a mentally altered mind. Thus his perception of the world is altered
and unrealistic. Many mistake this to be a flaw when it is anything but. Fight Club is
excellent because it takes on the challenging task of creating a major motion picture
that is a window into the mind of a crazed man and pulls it off. In the end, everything
in the film checks out when reviewed.
In addition to an incredible plot, the cinematography is second to none. David Fincher
(Director of Seven and The Game)
has once again orchestrated an excellent movie displayed in vivid scenes by challenging
visual effects. Photogrammetry was extensively used in Fight Club and truly sets it apart
from the mainstream of Hollywood films. These effects are like none that I have seen
in other movies.
As I'm sure you know already, any good movie has a good soundtrack as well. Fight Club is
no different. However, for such a unique film, unique music was needed. The Dust Brothers
came through with an original soundtrack that is mindful of the tone of Fight Club.
Fight Club is an excellent movie in all categories. You simply must see it.
