Fight-Club

This 90’s cult classic by Oscar-winning director David Fincher [Se7en, House of Cards] introduced a generation of young men to the joys of bare-knuckle boxing, nihilism, and the process of making soap. Yes, Fight Club, based off the Chuck Palahniuk novel, is a gritty psychological drama set apart by its black humor, witty dialog and unprecedented sense of gritty style. The film stars Edward Norton as an unnamed narrator drawn into the world of underground boxing by the charismatic Tyler Durden, played by Brad Pitt. Helena Bonham Carter, Jared Leto and Meat Loaf also join Fincher’s cast of whimsical goons and junkies. No self-respecting film buff can go without seeing this hyper-quotable masterpiece.

DuPont’s Floodplains Flows Onward

Water can be purifying, it can clean and soothe and nourish. It can also be something so formidable as to wear its way through soil and rock. Fittingly, then, Chris DuPont has titled his forthcoming album Floodplains, evoking a subtle but potent force of nature where a river mimics the unpredictable bends of life, depositing
