''You have to be able to answer this question: If you died right now, ho would you feel about your life?''

Fight club is not your regular timepass stuff. It makes you sit up and take notice, and then you are glued! The plot is singular, and the developement extraordinary. The story is far-fetched, but the ideas are could not be more relevant.

The plot: Our unnamed hero (Edward Norton) is bound into the endless nine-to-five routine, and is suffering from a major case of insomnia. After trying the partially successful remedy of visiting support groups of terminally ill patients, he bumps into Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). Tyler is exactly what our hero is not: free. Before parting company, Tyler manages to impress our hero, and give him his business card. Back home, our hero finds his apartment burned, and ends up staying with Tyler. His life would never be the same again.

The philosophy: The strength of the movie (though not so much its end) is rooted in the philosophising of Tyler. He believes (like most spiritual gurus) that its our worldly ties that cause all our pain and frustration, and man cannot be free until he has done away with everything he owns. He trains our hero in the path of this belief, and most of the action takes place as part of this process. But unlike other gurus, Tyler is amoral, and he has a plan...

The visuals: The film is a visual treat. Though some might find it too gory and offensive, the raw brutality of the scenes does add tremendously to the effect the movie creates. Also, it lends credibility to what would otherwise seem too far-fetched and imaginative.

The works: Edward Norton has essayed the role of the frustrated, confused hero extremely well. He fits well into the handsomely-paid white collar pen-pusher very nicely. Brad Pitt, of course, is Brad Pitt!

The result: You have to watch it to feel it.
