Fight Club (1999)

          Have you ever met somebody that changed your life? That possessed all the qualities you wish you had? Maybe even made you a better person?

          When you live in corporate America, with the same daily routine at the office and no real perspective, you feel the need to find refuge in something… anything before you fall in depression or even go crazy. Some people start smoking, drinking, even drugs. Others opt for casual sex, start a hobby or become immersed in cyberspace.

Our protagonist chooses nothing else besides… support groups. Prostate cancer, AA, tuberculosis… anything where he can evade from his biggest problem: insomnia. But everything changes when he meets two people that would radically alter his lifestyle: Marla Singer and Tyler Durden.

Marla drives him insane. She took up the same “hobby” by visiting the same support groups, not having any one of the problems in discussion… just like our protagonist. Tyler changes his life. All it took was a meeting in an airplane, where Tyler cuts off his small-talk by opening his eyes to reality.

I think I’ll leave the message written at the beginning of the DVD of Fight Club to describe this movie. Pay attention and take action. You will never regret seeing this movie for a single second.
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you
read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't
you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly
can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so
impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who
claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think
everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should
want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex.
Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a
fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will
become a statistic. You have been warned…
