Fight Club is one of my favorite films
The story line for this film is amazing and well played by the talented actors. The first character we meet in this film has no name, to us he is known as 'The Narrator' (Edward Norton) he is a normal man with a normal job, who suffers from insomnia. Basically he's bored and tired. He tries to seek help from his doctor in order to help him with his insomnia problem. The doctor refuses to give him any medication and asks The Narrator to see a support group.
He joins a support group for people with testicular cancer, he eventually leads the group to believe that he suffers with this illness. But The Narrator doesn't know that he has released some part of his insomnia. Eventually he goes to more and more groups sessions and meets Marla (Helena Bonham Carter) who he becomes friends with. He doesn't want to be seen at the same groups sessions with Marla so they come to an agreement to not meet up in the same places together.
Not wanting to explain the whole story The Narrator becomes friends with a man he meets on a plane from his business trip. He soon finds out his apartment since he's been away has exploded and he meets up with the guy he met Tyler (Brad Pitt). Long story short they create this club together after a fight outside a bar which leads them to create a fight club with a set of rules. Towards the end of the film SPOILER ALERT not going into to much detail this whole time The Narrator was in fact himself and Tyler and he literally made him up in his own head. What a great twist towards the end of the film which made me love this film even more.
I enjoy films such as this and normally once I see the twist at the end it makes me want to rewind the film to go back and see what clues i missed in solving it sooner.
A great film to watch, great way to have a twist at the end. Filmed really well and explained in full detail. And I really liked how we never knew what the The Narrators real name was. Well he did narrate a lot through the film.
