Fight Club is arguably Director David Fincher's finest movie to date and truly captures the darkness of the subject matter with some stunning cinematography and set pieces. The casting is also brilliant with Edward Norton providing the type of performance including his narration, which draws the viewer further into his world before hitting you for six with some wicked twists. It would appear that the bad publicity the movie gathered on initial release has actually stopped many from viewing this masterpiece of modern cinema, can you guess that I like this movie very much?
You are not the clothes you wear, you are not the contents of your wallet and the first rule of reviewing Fight Club is not to talk about Fight Club. If I went into any details of the plot of this movie it would simply serve to ruin it for you. All I can say is watch this movie now of you haven't already.
The R3 Korean edition of the film reviewed here has proven very difficult to get hold off and has gone out of print on two separate occasions, why? Well it is the only known edition that contains the film with a DTS soundtrack and many a home cinema fan have gone out of their way to get a copy. I am pleased to tell you that this edition has just been re-issued in Korea so you may just be able to get your hands on this set without any real problems, so how does it compare with the R1 and R2 editions available?
