Fight Club (1999): review: 8/10

An insurance evaluator seeks escape from his alienation, first by visiting support groups (for conditions for which he does not suffer), then through fighting.

This film is diverting: violent and comical- simultaneously a satire on consumerism, corporate values, therapy culture, the "mens' movement", and anti-corporatism.

The denoument is far too long, however, and the film could happily be reduced by 20 minutes.
