You take two cups of social discontent, mix it with battling inner demons, add a shitload of urban paranoia, and voila! An instant classic. Based on the book by Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club represents sticking it to the man at its best. Influenced by sentiments of lack of freedom and experiences, Edward Nortons character creates a badass alter ego named Tyler Durden, played by Brad Pitt, who leads him on a violent rampage across town. Durden is the guy every man wants to be and every girl wants to get in bed with. Seriously, though, Brads sweaty, bloody, perfectly molded abs kicking the shit out of some dude? Magical. Which reminds us, we just broke the first and second rules of Fight Club. Fuck!
