favorite movies based on books (2/?): Fight Club (1999) dir. David Fincher

“You wake up at O’Hare and take the shuttle into Chicago.
Set your watch ahead an hour.
If you can wake up in a different place.
If you can wake up in a different time.
Why can’t you wake up as a different person?”

– from Fight Club (1996) written by Chuck Palahniuk

I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you`re proud of, and if you find that you`re not, I hope you find the strength to start all over again.
—  The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), Dir. David Fincher
