Fight Club Fight Goes On

The film Fight Club is celebrating its ten year anniversary. A special collectors Blue Ray edition was released for the occasion. People have reported that it comes with a Project Mayhem-like prank. The Ny Times article takes a look at how the film has maintained its cult status for all these years.

The secret to the enduring allure of “Fight Club” may be that it is, as Mr. Norton put it, quoting Mr. Fincher, “a serious film made by deeply unserious people.” In other words, a film as willing to take on profound questions as it is to laugh at and contradict itself: what is “Fight Club” if not the most fashionable commercial imaginable for anti-materialism? A movie of big ideas and abundant ambiguities, it can be read and reread in many ways.
