I don't know about that, I thought FC ended sort of poorly and DD ended more consistently... but I knew I'd love the movie as soon as it opened up with emotionally needy people pretending to be screwed up so they could get into support group meetings. I love that dark quirky stuff.
(I agree with the assessment about it reflecting the underlying anxieties and frustrations of white middle-class male Gen X types too.)
I agree about the ending partly. But its a US audience. You just can't give them a story where the bad guy wins (i.e. Brad Pitt takes over Edward Norton's body permanently). Maybe if it had been made in Korea. They seem to enjoy depressing endings over there.
