David Fincher made his name with this crazed Chuck Palahniuk story, lending his dark but flashy style to the tale of psychosis mixed with anti-establishmentarianism. The opening scene in the film was endemic of the rest as we are sent from the molecular level of Ed Norton’s face to the barrel of the gun sticking in his mouth. The usage of extreme continuous shots made possible with CGI would involve itself heavily in the film, with this scene, set to adrenaline-fueled techno-punk score by the Dust Brothers starting it all.Vodpod videos no longer available.
