An anti-consumerism social commentary with a lot of great messages and lots of twists. A few very funny moments.

Very stylish. One of those movies where you walk out of the theater and the real world seems so boring. The special effects (mostly in cut-aways) and impossible camera movements are fabulous. Verbally and stylistically, very educational about the process of film projection.

Norton is awesome. He’s really good at playing delusional, schizoid fucks (Primal Fear). Amazing how he so quickly slimmed down to a piece of shit after his jacked role in American History X. Pitt is pretty cool and delivers a lot of great messages, firing out poignant quotes left and right. His character holes become irrelavent when it’s revealed that he’s just a delusion. Carter is very believable as a hot piece of American trash.
