    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    One of my favourites of all time. Having just finished the book I decided to give the film a rewatch. 

    There’s so much I love about Fight Club. It’s funny and very self-aware, an excellent elucidation on consumerism and where men fit into the modern day, capitalist society.

It sums up perfectly what it means to love someone, starting out with awkward looks and then slowly merging together over time to the point where you know how one another thinks and acts. 

    This film has so much meaning that I can’t wait to explore, this is my first time watching it so I…
