My favourite movie of all time. Simply amazing. The introspection of the characters, the ideas behind the whole movie (and the book), they are amazing and unique. This movie makes you think outside the ordinary, brings you to a new whole world, you begin to question your whole concept of society, and you start to hear that little voice inside of you who is Tyler Durden. After all, we all are a bit Tyler, aren't we?

This is such a masterpiece. The epicness of this movie is reached just by its book (Tolkien's). This movie creates an atmosphere and lets your mind to surf in a world made of elves and Balrogs. It brings lot of emotions, and sends to the viewers a lot of messages. Brilliant, beautiful.
