David Fincher's "defining cult film of our age" is 24 years old this year, so this special screening at Phenomena will likely not be the last opportunity to see it on the big screen in the next year or so. 

Along with American Psycho, it successfully bottled a brand of turn-of-the-millennium male angst that might just be better appreciated now, at a quarter-century's remove, than it was at the time. Edward Norton excels as The Narrator, a depressed salaryman who meets a mysterious soap salesman named Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) and forms an underground fighting ring with him, attracting an ever-growing band of acolytes, all of them similarly bored with life and looking to shock themselves out of their torpor.
