Shawn's Top 30 Films - #2: Fight Club

You know, I was able to get into a ridiculous amount of R rated movies in 1999. That was the year some sort of switch flipped and I decided I needed to see every movie coming out ever. By the end of that year, I had become quite good at bartering my way into R rated movies despite being 3 years too young to see them. I know I saw at least a dozen of them but only one truly made an impression – Fight Club. I hadn’t read the book and went in knowing literally nothing except for who the two stars were. It was mind blowing to say the least. The dialogue, the directing, the acting, the story, the twist – it was all incredible and were it not such a hassle to get into restricted movies, I guarantee you this would have been multiple times. I expected time to not be kind to this one but after breaking it back out just a couple weeks ago, it hasn’t lost an ounce of its greatness.
