Fight Club (1999)

Edward Norton plays an automobile company employee suffering from insomnia. He attends support groups and pretends he has life-threatening illnesses so he can let out whatever emotions he wants to get out, which helps him to sleep better. Until a young woman named Marla Singer enters his life and ruins everything by attending the support groups as well, and in turn his insomnia returns. He also meets a soap salesman named Tyler Durden on a plane. When the insomniac's condo blows up, he calls Tyler and asks to stay with him. Tyler lives in a large dilapidated house in an abandoned part of town. Together they form a secret fight club for young males to help vent their aggression. Both Norton and Pitt are phenomenal in this cult classic. Starring Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, Helena Bonham Carter, Meat Loaf, Zach Grenier, Jared Leto 8/10
