Endings

“No matter what you think of David Fincher’s translation of Chuck Palahniuk’s pre-iPod, post-post-punk nightmare, you have to admire an ending that foresaw things that are still being talked about today. The film predicts the emo-boy nation that we swim in these days, but the ending, with the Pixies’ raucous ‘Where is My Mind?’ wailing in the background, sees self-terrorism and numb romance as the new, essential way of life.” Chris Cabin, on 1999’s Fight Club
