Fight Club

Fight Club didn’t get great reviews when it came out, but it has developed into a cult classic in the fourteen years since its release.

The final scene is one of the most surprising of any move I’ve seen. The Pixies’ Where is My Mind is really the perfect soundtrack for the movie’s ending.

In his 1999 review, Roger Ebert wrote one of the best sentences ever. Referring to Tyler Durden, he writes:

“It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything,” he says, sounding like a man who tripped over the Nietzsche display on his way to the coffee bar in Borders.
