Fight Club's Cinematography
Fight Club, a confrontational, fierce, often ruthless parody is a mental thriller that follows the life of two apparent antagonists which almost fully echoes the narrative of the respectable Dr. Jekyll and the formidable Mr. Hyde, being that they are the same person, David Fincher externalizes an alter ego in a unique filmmaking style. The setup of the scenes also accommodated the emotions of the actors. Fight Club employs numerous styles of lighting that are used throughout the film depending on the mood and emotions felt at the time. By using low-key lighting, the scenes that are filmed in the basement emphasize the vibe that's felt in the room. This is also used when Tyler is alone, or Tyler and Jack together to portray an overall darkness, by creating higher saturation, a higher contrast, and heavier shadows. This helps characterize Tyler as highly masculine and having a perilous personality. Conversely, with Jack, we noticed the lighting is more high-key, often with low contrast and little to no shadows. This helps describe the narrator's consumeristic personality and mundane life. However, it is evident that Finch chose to utilize the tone and mood of low-key lighting more throughout the film, while both types of lighting appeared throughout. Nonetheless, on the off chance that the unmistakable difference in lighting was not used, the emotional distinction amongst Tyler and Jack's identities would not have been as apparent. Despite the fact that it is an extremely stylized approach, the lighting of the film, still somewhat seems sensible. The locations chosen accompanied their own inherent lightning. Examples include streetlights for backlighting, and fluorescents, which illuminated an off-color hue, that was cold and suits the tone. This is what created the realistic effect of the differentiating miss en scène used amongst character's and settings, and emerged as clues for the narrator's different identities. The placement and angle of the camera also played a critical role in the cinematography and guided the perception of the audience. The filmmaker chose to shoot most of the scenes in which the actors in close proximity of each other. This includes shots that were intimate, personal, and social. Fincher also utilizes camera angles to differentiate the contrasting personalities. When Tyler and the members of fight club are in the basement, Tyler is in the middle of a low angle shot. This type of camera angle is used to show us that he is the authoritative member in which everyone admires. Another scene in which Tyler, with his abettors behind him, is in a close-up after they jump an official. This suggests power and dominance over the audience while allowing us to feel how threatened and scared the official must be. Another brilliant example of the cinematography and editing coming intertwined with each other was when jack brutally beats up a member during a fight. Again, this was another low angle shot chosen by the filmmakers. The placement of the camera forces us to look upwards at him, all the while making him seem more capable and deliberating. The filmmakers chose this angle to make the viewer cringe at this intense moment. We also notice that the camera is often stationary during many of the scenes in the first half of the film. But as we go on, the camera starts to position itself as a first-person view of the character. This is another clue given to us that Tyler and Jack are the same person. David Fincher chose these various camera angles, lighting, and colors as a technique to deliver the audience clues, crucial information, and hidden motives throughout the film.

A review of Fight Club.
Fight Club has many things going for it, when looking deep into the techniques used to relay the emotions and feelings desired. The one that stands out is the dim and sometimes pitch-black scenes that really put an ominous feeling over the scene. Another is the camera views chosen in this film. In many of the scenes there was a new placement for the camera to look at. Although there are many more film making techniques used throughout this film, these are the ones that really stood out when viewing the film.

In order to give this film the right feel it only made sense to use a very dark and creepy lighting style. If this film had a light theme similar to something like a children's movie, it would have had a much different feel. And then the cinematographer would have not been able to relay the message that was intended. However, this film is not all dark. There is a good number of scenes in which a lighter theme is used. This is to give a very graphic and clear view of what is going on in these moments. This is most apparent in the scene in which the narrator is in his boss's office and is beating himself up. The lighting in this scene is such that you can see everything that is going on in vivid detail. Another example of this is the scene in which the members of project mayhem bring back Bob from their "mission" and everyone is arguing over what to do. Unlike most of the other chaotic scenes in this film the lighting of this scene is such that there is no question as to what has happened.

In coordination with the lighting the camera angles and views are another key component to the successful portrayal of the desired theme. The use of the different types camera angles can add a lot of varied subconscious emotions. This allows for the cinematographer to relay these feelings while doing very little work. While this is the ideal scenario, it is not always that easy, which is why other methods exist, such as lighting and sound. Other subconscious notions that all work together. Some examples of scenes in which the camera angle added to the story telling affect include, most of the scenes that took place in the house. These camera movements and angles really make you feel like you are in a claustrophobic building. You also get the feeling of a lot of filth, which is amplified by how small the spaces feel. Another example of interesting angles are the ones used in the fight scenes. The camera was either up around head height, or pretty much on the floor. This was done to get really close up views to the people who were being beaten up on the floor. And to really show the gore and blood that was being flung everywhere in these fights.

Over all these two techniques were both well utilized in order to relay the feeling and emotions desired by the director and the cinematographer. And to add to that they were used in almost a

seamless way where it was just one flowing motion and it was sometimes difficult to be able to tell what techniques were being used over others. This is a testament to the talent of the talent of the director and cinematographer. To be able to envision these ideas before they were ever put onto a screen. As well as the editors and after effects people who can adjust all of these parameters after the whole film has been shot.

I am Jack's kick-ass review
To be honest with you, when I saw the title of the movie, I thought it was going to be another mindless action film. But then something happened.....I actually watched it. I thought the movie was genius. It wasn't so much about fighting. It was more about schizofrenic office worker that suffered from insomnia. Brad Pitt, the star of the movie, played his character (Tyler Durden) flawlessly. Throughout the movie, Ed Norton's character (the narrator) was trying to fight his inner demons which were preventing him from getting any sleep. With the help of several small terrorist groups, a disturbed female that pretended to suffer from testicular cancer, and Tyler Durden (a self righteous psycho), the narrator can finally resolve his problems. I feel I would have enjoyed the movie much more had not my brother spoiled the damn ending before I watched it, but even without the surprise ending, Fight Club still makes my top 10.

One of the Best Films Of All Time With a Perfect Script
Fight Club is directed by David Fincher and stars Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, Helena Bonham Carter, Meat Loaf, and Jared Leto. Edward Norton's character, known only as the Narrator, is living a depressing life. His day job is behind a desk, and he accompanies himself by buying things that he doesn't really need in order to find fulfillment in his life. He begins attending support groups for conditions that he doesn't have, in order to feel relief through expressing his pain to those who have it worse.

Once Bonham Carter's character, Marla Singer, begins showing up to these meetings, he begins to feel remorse in his life again. However, once he meets cool guy Tyler Durden (Pitt), he, along with Tyler, start a "fight club," a place in which men who seek fulfillment may find it through beating each other up. Once things with both Tyler and Marla begin to get a bit shaky, our Narrator must fix his own problems without the help of others.

It's very rare to find a film in which you completely love everything about. In my humble opinion, however, Fight Club is easily one of the best films ever made. With its eerie direction, fantastic acting, and more than compelling characters, Fight Club is as close as it gets to perfect, with no issues to be found in it. The flawless script contributes to my liking of this movie, due to amazing dialogue and great detail upon the current setting.

If anyone has ever read the script for Fight Club, it's just shy of 200 pages, and that is magnificently impressive. The detail the script goes into is purely astounding, and the lines are written, and performed, perfectly. The script, written by Jim Uhls (and based off of the novel by Chuck Palahniuk), is incredibly written in near every way, with great in depth depictions of how each shot was to be set up, and how the actors were to perform their lines.

The direction, by David Fincher, is exemplary, with great camera angles and surprisingly memorable shots. The shot I remember most particularly is when Tyler Durden is delivering the final rule of fight club (that being the eighth), and the camera zooms on the side of his face, passing his head and spinning quickly to the next shot of two men fighting. Every single shot, like the one just mentioned, is brilliant, excellently pulled off by Fincher.

The characters, combined with the talented acting behind them, is also very unique. Although the Narrator is supposed to be a boring everyday man, the viewer cares for his situations deeply. Throughout the film, he breaks the fourth wall multiple times, and this adds a very personal level the caring for him through the entire run time of the film. Norton plays this character wonderfully, thanks to his great acting abilities. The character of Tyler Durden is easily one of the best, and coolest, characters ever put to film. Every line that Pitt delivers as Tyler is flawless, and deserves all the recognition that a character, and his actor, could ever receive.

The other characters, such as Bonham Carter's Marla, Meat Loaf's Bob, and Jared Leto's Angel Face, are also amazing. The audience quickly sympathizes with everybody in the film, thanks to great acting and dialogue. Once again, the script's lines are written and delivered flawlessly, with each actor giving his or her line ideally. Each character is well rounded, and has a great arc throughout the run time of Fight Club.

The pacing of Fight Club is also astounding. An almost 2 hour 30 minute film goes by as if the story is told in 20 minutes, and flies by so quickly. This is mostly due to the quick, yet detailed, script, and fantastic direction. Both Fincher and Uhls make this movie zoom by, as if no time has gone by at all. Each of the actors also contribute to this aspect, ultimately making the film feel very short.

The last thing I'll mention is the plot twist. Without spoiling anything, Fight Club has one of, if not the, best plot twists in film history. Everything throughout the film sets up for the twist, yet we, the audience, don't pick up on the clues when watching the film for the first time. Fight Club is a rare type of film in which contains a better experience watching it for the second time than watching it for the first. The twist is perfectly built up to, and flawlessly executed in every way.

Overall, Fight Club is one of my favorite films of all time, and I like to say that it's one of the best movies ever made. I'd recommend Fight Club to anyone that can handle violence and language, because it's truly worth anyone's time.

The comparison to Clockwork Orange makes me puke
Please.

This is a dismal movie. I'm going to spoil some stuff, so don't read if you don't want, but read on if you want to save some time and money.

After I sat through this abomination, I knew I'd come on here and see that it got great reviews, because it tried to be so artsy that weak-minded people would say they liked it just to try to convince themselves that they have advanced taste. Midway through I told myself that if I heard that "I am Jake's this and that" line again I would get up and leave, but sure enough I kept hearing it and I stayed. Maybe I'm as dumb as the filmmakers. The fact of the matter is that I haven't seen a plot this full of holes since "Slugs". So if I start a fight club, the participants will just start showing up at my doorstep out of the blue and turn into mind-numbed drones that do my evil bidding??? Not only that, but this movie also taught me that if I stick a gun in my mouth and pull the trigger, not only will I live but I'll be able to talk to people in my normal voice, as long as I put a gauze pad on it.

If you still don't know, this movie is about a clinically-depressed guy who's search for therapy leads him to Brad Pitt, who teaches him that beating the bejeezus out of people will brighten his spirits. More guys find out about this, and they all join the "fight club" and then naturally go live with Pitt to become his evil minions. Of course! This must be how the Wicked Witch found all those monkeys. Their evil deeds get worse and worse, and the supposedly still-sane Norton inexplicably keeps hanging out with this bunch. This leads to one totally inane scene where the evil monkeys return from a gunfight with one of their members dead, and all Norton can do is whine "C'mon guys, cut it out".

So after this movie backs itself into a miserable corner, it's only escape is the equally awful "It was all a dream" ending, where we find out that Brad Pitt was just Norton's evil imaginary friend, and that Norton had been committing all these acts himself. Please audience, forget the fact that the "imaginary" Pitt managed to pull Norton from a burning car wreck and pick him up off the ground and hurl him down a flight of stairs. I don't care how psycho you are, your imaginary friend cannot physically pick you up.

Plot hole #9233 asks us to believe that during this short time, Norton had been in EVERY MAJOR CITY in the US forming more armies of mind-numbed robot monkeys, and that every male over the age of 18 in the United States was now a member of his "secret" evil gang. So anyhow, Norton finally realizes that he's been crazy all this time, and to kill Pitt he sticks a gun in his own mouth and blows his neck off, a wound which apparently isn't as debilitating as you would think, since he manages to get right up and make up with his girlfriend and watch peacefully as his evil plot comes to fruition. But wait, you thought he was sane now and would be horrified at what he did? So would I, but that apparently also is not the case.

Before you typically think that my movie tastes aren't as cultured as yours, let me tell you that I loved the masterpiece that was "A Clockwork Orange", and this movie was NO "Clockwork". If Clockwork ended by telling you that the old man in the wheelchair was actually the killer and that McDowell was just his evil imagination, then we'd have a comparison, but Kubrick wasn't that horribly stupid.

I am Jake's bad movie review.

Great Movie
Fight Club is the kind of movie that tugs at your inner demons. It'll make you take a step back and really question the life you're living. It's a powerful film that really puts you in the place of crazed Tyler Durden. Director David Fincher chose to take the route of a film noir over a classical film, and the genius of this choice lives on in the legacy that is Fight Club. The lighting, the camera angles, and the story all blend together to become an instant classic. Edward Norton plays a character who is stuck in a cycle of depression and insomnia. After a doctor recommendation, he attends support groups to let go and help his insomnia. He eventually meets Tyler Durden, a soap salesmen who changes his life forever. From the very beginning of the movie, the film is dark, and low lit, there are very little scenes with bright lighting. The film-noir- esque film focuses on not showing too much, and keeping dark overtones to make the audience feel on edge or more intrigued in different cases. Especially during scenes where the fight club is actually taking place, everyone's faces are shrouded around the outside, while the lone spotlight in the middle signifies the only thing that matters to the members of fight club. The film follows many of the same standards found in a film-noir, such as the dark, abandon and unkempt home, the heavy focus on using violence to get what you desire, and the idea of having a following, who will do as you wish regardless of the request. The narrator and Tyler's home is a rundown house, filled with leaks, trash, and mold everywhere. It really shows how driven the pair are to be different, and stray away from societal norms, and how little they care for living how an average person lives. It really emphasizes how far gone they are from sanity, and how far they are willing to go to stand for what they believe in. The way the members of fight club are portrayed says a lot about them as well. In the beginning, everyone fights with no shoes, and no shirts. They are seen as barbaric, stripping down to their roots to do only as instinct tells them. By the end however, they are dressed in all black, and the organization has drastically changed. They have gone from an organization built on liberating themselves, to an organization built on liberating others. The way the characters are portrayed shows visually the change from self-liberation, to organized crime. The way the film is shot is very effective as well. Often times we find ourselves seeing things directly from the eyes of the narrator, or right up in the character's faces. This style of up close and personal filming helps the audience establish a personal connection with them. The goes hand in hand with the dark lighting as well. We see close up faces and minimal lighting, and it really brings out the raw emotion and dark senses in the characters. Overall, Fight Club was a great movie, the plot was fantastic, and the twist caught me completely off guard. It was exciting to watch and I found myself constantly wondering where the story was going and wondering what was happening, until the ending completely reels you in. The dark lighting and abstract film angles emphasize the true nature of the Narrators mind. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who loves dark and brutal films with great and unexpected twists.

Maybe one of the best movies ever made
An intense psychological thriller movie that goes so deep into the protagonist's mind that feels almost like dreaming. Many scenes are symbolic and you need to watch them again and again to reveal cool details that are strategically placed. And that's one thing. The overall movie is just plain cool. Colors, editing and overall style are just beyond. Of course the twist of the plot is also amazing and it is one of the most shocking experiences you can get from modern cinema. Also the cast couldn't have been better. The chemistry of the roles in this movie is astonishing. Apart from all this the soundtrack by chemical brothers is of course rated high. Go see it if you haven't done yet. One of my favourites. The end.

Its majesty Figh Club
I've read few 1 star rated comments of FC and I got amazed how people who dislike this movie enjoy trashing and insulting people that find it masterpiece... I didn't like it at all first time I've seen it and if I knew about IMDb then, I'll surely give it 2-3 stars. But when I've seen it for the second time (even if I wasn't keen of it, friend made me) – all bits and pieces came in their places and I've realized that this is the best movie ever made. Unlike most movies today, this one makes you think. You may enjoy it without being anarchist, whore, drug addict, uneducated, aggressive, neo Nazi and everything else that caring 1star givers classified us. It's their problem they want from movie to be linear, classical thriller, to have logical plot, believable characters etc. It's their problem that only conclusion they can come up with is that "this will make stupid people that are on the edge, to blow up buildings and deliver pain" or "it portrays sadistic violence, anarchy and terrorism in an appealing light and attempts to make it seem intelligent; instead of what it is insanity". If it isn't sad, it would be funny...

People can't make difference between satire and critics on the one side and glorification on the other side... Fight club is wonderful and poignant critics of the world today and 8.8 rating tells me that most of the people got it right. For all the others – too bad for you that you're not able to see it's excellence...

tyler durden is joker
In end of book: When Tyler is sorry, all the battles will save a few clubs in the city, and he's beaten so much that one side of her face is completely torn from ear to ear, and in the last scene he says I want to smile, from ear to ear and gun His mouth and the other side also tear his face, which means he is not actually going to die himself, but when that laugh is completed, the evil part of his being is killed.

The Most Ridiculous and Overrated Movie in the History of Mankind
I have tried to keep the number of spoilers to a minimum, while making those that remain as vague as possible.

This movie has broken some long-standing records of mine. Let me list them:

1. The most irritating movie 2. The most ridiculous high-budget movie (beating Knowing) 3. The most overrated movie (beating Pulp Fiction - Gotta admit, I didn't think this record was being beaten for a while longer)

To describe this film as a train wreck would be the understatement of the century. There isn't a word or phrase in existence to sum up this colossal nightmare. The closest I can come to it is the word 'abomination'. But go ahead and knock yourself out with a thesaurus. It's definitely the worst high-budget or worst high-rated movie I have ever seen, and I don't think that's a record that will be beaten for a long, long time.

The person who wrote this had absolutely no idea how to create a believable or coherent story (or else was trolling). It literally cannot work in the real world in ANY WAY. Even if this were a comic book fiction, the plot would have more holes in it than Britney Spears' brain. But it's set in our world and with ordinary humans. Well, I say 'ordinary', but the humans in this film have seemingly had brain tissue removed so they can get from A to B without wondering what the hell is going on.

I could go through the movie and write a thesis on everything that is contrary to good storytelling, but I will instead highlight some things that spring to mind:

1. A man goes into his place of work and threatens to kill his boss and co-workers. His boss does nothing at all about it. Not to mention the man is coming into work all the time with a smashed-in face.

2. If the "Fight Club" were real, the people in it would be dead long before they could enact a master plan. No human could or would inflict this level of damage on such a frequent basis.

3. You cannot beat yourself up the way the main character in this film does. It's physically impossible - and probably mentally impossible, too. When Jim Carrey did this in Liar Liar, we all laughed because it's funny and worked in a comedy. How thick does a director have to be to think this can work in a serious setting? The laws of biology are also absent for the duration of this picture, because a silly thing like fact can interfere with a bad writer's screenplay. Some dumb individuals tried to create their own Fight Club after seeing this movie, but they quickly learned the difference between reality and bad fiction. Brain damage, pain, and serious injury exist in the real world, folks. Who'd have thunk it?

4. There is no way that one person (especially a nut job) could infiltrate so many organizations in such a coordinated fashion, or plant so many bombs without people finding out. The real world is a bit more complicated than the moron who wrote this obscenity. A Tom and Jerry cartoon has better logic than this film.

5. Man's apartment (part of a tower block) is blown to bits and the police find out dynamite was involved. Man is told not to go anywhere but is then allowed to jet about the country. He isn't even brought in for questioning. Are you realizing why this story is cuckoo, yet?

6. There is no possible way a psychopath could brainwash so many people and form a large-scale army, spread over such a wide area. But the plot needs it to happen - so it does. Oh, I love it when writers do that. Don't you?

7. The twist makes as much sense as the rest of the film. It's not just impossible, it's ludicrous. It's so bad that even a three year old would laugh at it.

Fight Club also joins Pulp Fiction and Goodfellas as films to be in the top 20 simply because of gratuitous violence and gore. At least Goodfellas is a decent film with some basis in reality.

The only reason this film has been rated so high is because the dumb masses will swallow anything with violence and a pseudo-intellectual script. People who gave this film 10/10 are either gormless fools or mindless barbarians. It's an absolute travesty for the human race that Fight Club is currently in the top 10, let alone top 250.

It's beyond all my powers of reasoning to accept something as lazily written and ridiculous as this festering disease of a film. It has absolutely zero credibility.

My rating 0/5: DO NOT WATCH. STEER WELL CLEAR. Even the name 'Fight Club' should tell you something about the intellect that created it - by the looks of it, another sneering champagne socialist.
