It was in the year 1999 that Chuck Palahniuk’s novel “Fight Club” was converted into a movie that would go down in history as one of the most twisted movies ever made. It’s now completed 20 whole years since its release! As of today, this movie is present in the Top 250 movies of all time and is on Rank #10.
The movie has esteemed actors like Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, and Helena Bonham Carter! These guys have acted amazingly well and hence the movie found an audience of its own. The one that stood out in this movie is Brad Pitt. Why did we think so? There are exactly 5 reasons to this: (**NO SPOILERS AHEAD**)
The role was meant for HIM!
It’s rare to find movies where you cannot imagine anyone else doing a better job than one actor. This is one such movie. The role Brad Pitt plays can only be played by him and no one else. Whether it was the way he dressed or even the way he displayed his persona, it was just mesmerizing.
What we like about Brad Pitt here is that he owned the role and created a masterpiece of a performance. Its gold level acting and you’ll love it for sure.
Quotes spoke by Brad Pitt and the rest
There are so many quotes in this movie that make so much sense. They have been used as metaphors in songs and are still being quoted today by many! Here are some of the awesome quotes:
- This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time.
- It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.
What we like about this movie is when Brad Pitt and others speak on these quotes; it just gives a different feeling altogether. You feel transported and start thinking about how your life is treating you.
His character transformation
When you see the whole movie, Brad Pitt’s character will undergo solid changes. It is considered to be amazing when you can witness a character on screen developing and shaping up in the way they should be! Here are some looks from the whole movie and you can see how different he looks!
What we like about Brad Pitt here is that he makes the changes so evidently that anyone can recognize it. It’s a mark of a fine actor to pull off such acting skills.
Lines spoken 20 years ago make sense today!
There are some dialogues from this movie that were spoken 20 years ago but completely make sense today in 2019. Here are 2 such dialogues from the film;
- The things you own end up owning you.
- We buy things we don’t need, to impress people we don’t like
We indeed are owned by technology and impressing people is costly but we anyway do it! Wow, they did get this right in 1999 itself. Isn’t that so cool? When Pitt used the second dialogue, it did give more emphasis as the story moved forward!
He was in his prime!
After delivering a smashing hit in “Seven” he offered another masterpiece in the form of “Tyler Durden”. This character name just stuck on and even after 2 decades, no one has forgotten this character. Brad Pitt later went on to start acting in series of hits starting with the “Ocean’s 11” series!
What we like about Brad Pitt in “Fight Club” is how he used his skills to display a persona so deadly that no one can see the twist coming in at the end of the movie!
It’s been over 20 years since we witnessed such a movie. Edward, Helena, and Brad Pitt gave stellar performances. But one person that all still remember quite vividly will always be “Tyler Durden” a.k.a Brad Pitt!
