    This movie is in my top 5, especially as an artist, this is required viewing, I am glad it got a perfect score from you. Wish I could tell my boss to go take a flying leap :[

    I think you make a valid point when saying a lot of people don’t really understand how enlightening this film actually is. There is a lot that people miss by focusing on the superficial aspect of the story, but I guess that doppelganger only adds to it’s appeal.

    What a great movie this one is. I was blown away at the ending and literally wanted to just sit in the theater for the next showing so I could watch it all again with that new understanding of what just happened. It’s one of those movies I wish I could ‘un-see’ so I could watch it for the first time all over again.

    I personally think the movie is a little overrated in terms of importance, but very enjoyable and at minimum creates conversation about real topics and concepts, which so few films actually do. I’ve always had a problem with people turning the Tyler Durden character into too powerful of an anti-hero and idol, because they were so seduced by Brad Pitt in that role. Pitt made the character so sexy it is impossible to not be attracted to it, which I think is a problem. The character is supposed to be powerful because of his confidence, but Pitt made it almost as much about his, well, amazing body and physical appearance that it diluted that. Honestly if Ed Norton with his American History X would have played Durden and done it well, it would have been about the real power and confidence of the character. And if that would have generated the same reaction, then this film would be truly special. Feel free to nuke me, I’ve had this argument a 100 times before and no one has been able to change my mind.

    I thought this review was pretty spot on, though I’d probably want to hear more specifically about the movie rather than just the philosophy behind it.

    And Trapped: I don’t think that was Pitts intention, nor Finchers, it just was part of the raw essence of what Fight Club symbolized. Raw, sexual, and powerful. Pitt was NOT a sex symbol in this role.

    I agree that this movie is pretty much one of a kind, as no one has been daring enough to try and complete similar storylines and put across the whole point of the movie. \

    That is one of my favorite quotes EVER from movies !!!
