I saw it again when I was 13 and just started seeing movies for what they were – a language. A language through which the filmmakers interpret their own views on the world. I understood more of it, especially being part of “the middle children of history” generation.
After that, I saw it at least once per year and every single time, I realized something new or different about it, and the world itself. I grew with this movie both intellectually and spiritually.
Still took me another 12 years to understand this movie is THE textbook for Jungian psychology BESIDES already being the single greatest social critique of the consumer era.
It’s ridiculously smart, deep, beautiful and cool. I’ve watched basically every movie out there, and nothing comes even close to the degree of greatness of Fight Club.
