4 FIGHT CLUB (1999)

New Straits Times - - Groove -

Adapted from the 1996 Chuck Palah­niuk novel of the same name, it fol­lows the story of a dis­il­lu­sioned worker who de­vel­ops a de­struc­tive re­la­tion­ship with a care­free soap maker and his off­beat girl­friend (played by Bon­ham Carter), which es­ca­lates into some­thing much darker.

Court­ney Love, Wi­nona Ry­der and Reese Wither­spoon were con­sid­ered for her role. Direc­tor David Fincher, who wanted Bon­ham Carter, got his wish af­ter Wither­spoon, the stu­dio’s main choice, dropped out. The ac­tress based her per­for­mance on Judy Gar­land in the later stages of her life and Fincher of­ten called her Judy on set.
