Join us this November for one of the 90s stand-out dramas with one of the best head f*** twists since his previous movie, David Fincher’s FIGHT CLUB, starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.
In this darkly comic drama, Edward Norton stars as a depressed young man (named in the credits only as “Narrator”) who has become a small cog in the world of big business. He doesn’t like his work and gets no sense of reward from it, attempting instead to drown his sorrows by putting together the “perfect” apartment. He can’t sleep and feels alienated from the world at large; he’s become so desperate to relate to others that he’s taken to visiting support groups for patients with terminal diseases so that he’ll have people to talk to. One day on a business flight, he discovers Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt), a charming iconoclast who sells soap. Tyler doesn’t put much stock in the materialistic world, and he believes that one can learn a great deal through pain, misfortune, and chaos. Tyler cheerfully challenges his new friend to a fight. Our Narrator finds that bare-knuckle brawling makes him feel more alive than he has in years, and soon the two become friends and roommates, meeting informally to fight once a week.
Starring Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter, Meat Loaf, Jared Leto

“…capturing perfectly the stirring discontent of the 90s & the madness (geopolitical/economic) that would erupt globally in the decade to come. For in his love of anarchic (self-)destruction, Tyler shows the new Millennium through a glass darkly.” – Anton Bitel, Sight & Sound
FIGHT CLUB is rated 18. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
