I have watched other David Fischer's movies "seven", "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", which Brad Pitt appears, and these movies was also great. The movies made me a big fan of him, but after watching this movie, I was so impressed and got more into his performance. I have ever watched so many movies in my life, and I can say it without doubt, Fight Club is one the best movie I have ever watched. The actors in this movie look unique and very cool. That makes this movie attractive.
The film narrator, actually his real name is unrevealed in this movie, who is also leading character (Edward Norton) spends his life working boring job and has problem with sleeping. However he finds joy which is going to as many support seminar for people suffering from cancers as he can. He is not suffering from cancers though. By Bring there, talking with people who has serious disease, getting ready to cry, he is able to release himself and sleep very well at night. This is his vacation. One day, a woman, Marla Singer(Helena Bonham Carter), comes in the seminar, forces him to stop attending the seminar and ruins his routine. The narrator also meets Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) on the plane. He is charismatic soap salesman looking very straightforward, and he enjoys his life by doing what he wants. The narrator has nothing special about his life, but everything changes when he meet Tyler. One night, two of them meet at bar and suddenly Tyler asks the narrator to hit him as hard as the narrator can. At first, it looks strange request but after they start hitting each other they feel good for some reason. A strange feeling comes to them. They feel satisfied by fighting, feeing pain. The narrator begins to think "everything else in life got the volume turned down. I could deal with anything". As they start fighting in front of bar as usual at night, other people watching them soon join in. Under the ground of the bar becomes Fight Club. Only the moment they are fighting makes them feel alive. It doesn't need words.
I was really surprised when I found that Tyler and the narrator was actually the same person. Tyler was the ideal character that the narrator created. It was funny to see Edward Norton hitting himself in front of bar, and at the same time, it was impressive. Some people may say this movie is aggressive and promotes violence. I don't think so. The purpose of Fight Club is self-destruction. Not violence to others but accepting the pain makes them feel alive. I think this is the point of this movie. There is a symbolic scene where the narrator fights with a blonde guy. Even though the guy is already knocked off and passes out, he keeps punching the guy on the face. This scene made me really sick. He is completely beaten up and his face is covered with blood. Tyler said to him " where did you go? Psycho boy". I realized that this kind of extreme violence is thought as unacceptable behavior in this movie. Also I was moved by some Tyler's lines. "It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything." "This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time." "Without pain, without sacrifice we would have nothing." I feel like Tyler tells me something important of life. That's why I love this movie.
I absolutely love this movie and can watch it over and over again. Both Brad Pitt and Edward Norton's acting is absolutely fantastic. Thanks to Fight club, I've rediscovered how great actors they are. This movie has some strong messages. It's about finding yourself and finding out what you really want to do in your life. I'm sure you will get into this movie and some quotes. I recommend you to watch this movie if you are interested in.
