Double bill of acclaimed films dealing with men having identity crises.
Adapted from Chuck Palahniuk's novel, David Fincher's controversial drama 'Fight Club' (1999) explores themes of masculinity and violence in contemporary society.
Edward Norton stars as Jack, a bored insomniac, determined to inject some excitement into his life.
He meets Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt), a charismatic soap salesman who believes that the only way to escape the banality of modern existence is through violence.
To these ends, Jack and Tyler set up 'Fight Clubs', where men can engage in brutal bare-knuckle fights.
However, friction develops between the two men when they become rivals for the attentions of Marla (Helena Bonham-Carter).
Guy Pearce stars in 'Memento' (2000) as Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce), who is suffering from acute short-term memory loss and is unable to remember anything for more than a few minutes at a time.
This means that not only does he have no idea who he is, but that also, whenever he meets someone, a few minutes later he will have forgotten who they are too.
Of course, all this makes things very difficult when his one mission in life is to track down his wife's killers.
