It's a film by David Fincher starring Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, Helena Bonham Carter... It centers around a guy suffering from insomnia. He tries all kinds of therapy groups but none can help him, until he meets Tyler Durden, a soap salesman who in many ways is the opposite of the narrator. They for an underground fight club and it is like a form of therapy. Later, the fight club evolves in to something much bigger.

Many people have the false assumption that this movie is just about some dudes with six packs hitting eachother. And it's not. It's much more then that, it doesn't even have much fighting in it. It's a psychological drama based on the book by Chuck Palahniuk. The movie has some dark humor too. Fun fact: Chuck has said that the movie is even better then the book he wrote. Another fun fact: we never find out the name of the Narrator in the movie. There are some hints that his name is Jack (like in the book) and he uses some fake names in therapy groups.

The movies "hates" on modern society, marketing, consumerism...Tyler teaches the Narrator to live a care-free life. The Narrator is an uptight salesman obsessed with Ikea filled with everyday, trivial problems and worries, which he (we) shouldn't even have.

There are some small interesting things that I like in this movie (besides the "hating" on modern society and the coolness of Tyler). The intro is made so it seems like it is getting out of the Narrator's brain. At first it displays all the brain cells and whatever the brain has and it "gets out" from the head, then the movie starts with the narration from the main character.

It already is a cult classic. It didn't get much awards and nominations, the critics even gave it bad reviews when it first came out.

Here are some random quotes from the movie:
  • **** off with your sofa units and strine green stripe patterns, I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say let... lets evolve, let the chips fall where they may.[/*:m:ly7apu52]
  • Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God **** it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy **** we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.[/*:m:ly7apu52]
  • It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.[/*:m:ly7apu52]
  • You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your ****ing khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.[/*:m:ly7apu52]
  • Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else.[/*:m:ly7apu52]
  • On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.[/*:m:ly7apu52]
  • The things you own end up owning you.[/*:m:ly7apu52]
  • Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken.[/*:m:ly7apu52]
  • And then, something happened. I let go. Lost in oblivion. Dark and silent and complete. I found freedom. Losing all hope was freedom.[/*:m:ly7apu52]
  • I felt like putting a bullet between the eyes of every Panda that wouldn't screw to save its species. I wanted to open the dump valves on oil tankers and smother all the French beaches I'd never see. I wanted to breathe smoke.[/*:m:ly7apu52]
  • We're a generation of men raised by women. I'm wondering if another woman is really the answer we need.[/*:m:ly7apu52]
Tyler Durden: Shut up! Our fathers were our models for God. If our fathers bailed, what does that tell you about God?

Narrator: No, no, I... don't...

Tyler Durden: Listen to me! You have to consider the possibility that God does not like you. He never wanted you. In all probability, he hates you. This is not the worst thing that can happen.

Narrator: It isn't?

Tyler Durden: We don't need him!
