Fight Club: for the first time in 2K + exclusive Q&A with author Chuck Palahniuk, LIVE!
Fight Club is based on the 1996 novel of the same name by author Chuck Palahniuk. Directed by David Fincher, the movie stars Edward Norton, Brad Pitt and Helena Bonham Carter, with a screenplay by Jim Uhls. Norton plays the unnamed protagonist, an ‘every man’ who is dissatisfied with his white-collar job and bland lifestyle. He forms a fight club with enigmatic soap-maker, Tyler Durden (Pitt). The underground club grows rapidly and exponentially across the country. The narrator becomes fascinated with Durden and a hedonistic woman he meets at a cancer survivors’ group, Marla Singer (Bonham Carter).
While Fight Club polarised critics and audiences alike on release, it quickly became the cinematic record of 1990s zeitgeist that it remains today—as incisive and unrelenting in its examination of self-esteem based on rampant consumerism as it was 15 years ago.
