Last night I rewatched Fight Club, after nearly 10 years, and it only reminded me why it figures in those best of the 90’s top 10 lists, and how much I love Helena Bonham Carter as Marla Singer.

“I got this dress at a thrift store for one dollar. It’s a bridesmaid’s dress. Someone loved it intensely for one day, then tossed it. Like a Christmas tree – so special, then, bam – it’s abandoned on the side of the road, tinsel still clinging to it… Like sex crime victims, underwear inside-out, bound with electrical tape.”
