"Fight Club" screening

Last week we held our first (double) screening of the semester and it was pretty packed!  It looks like everyone had fun whether they came for the first movie or the second (or stayed for both), so let's mark that down as a success. :)

This week we're screening "Fight Club," one of the most popular suggestions on the movie survey Darin made.  The film is about an office employee and a soap salesman who build a global organization to help vent male aggression as a response to the American culture of consumerism.  A David Fincher adaptation of the Chuck Palahniuk novel, it has attained cult status and marked a cinematic turning point in the transition from the 90s to the 2000s.

So come on down- it'll be a lot of fun!  As always food and drinks will be provided. :)

And speaking of David Fincher, apparently he's directing a movie about Facebook?  Whaaaaat?  Will there be a sequel about Twitter?  A prequel about Myspace?

For my money, this film features one of the the best fusions of music and film of all time, with "Where Is My Mind?" blaring over the last minute and end credits.
