Sunday Cinema – “Clube da Luta”

Fight

 

A gem from 1999 (geez, 15 years!), “Clube da Luta” is based on a 1996 novel of the same name by author Chuck Palahniuk.

The narrator (no name given) suffers from bouts of insomnia caused by his job and almost constant business trips. He finds relief in visiting support groups until a woman calls him out as a “faker”. On a flight, he meets a soap salesman and from there all hell breaks loose.

Starring Edward Norton & Brad Pitt, it originally received critical reviews with worries about “copycat” behavior. It went on to win several awards and enjoys a 79% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Someone posted this version with foreign subtitles for everyone to enjoy.
