It's a deceptively understated performance as the last third of the film reveals but Norton nails it perfectly. Its structure is extremely playful as it messes around with linear time to an incredible degree. Why must we always have to go through the A+B+C formula? They are the perfect setup for Tyler's introduction and his view on the world which is clearly a call to arms of sorts, a manifesto that rejects the notion that we are what we own. I've read the book 5 times since and seen the movie more times than I can remember. A movie about guys who fight - it didn't seem to deep, but I thought it would provide entertainment. They feel a kind of release and satisfaction at inflicting pain on one another. Once you see the film, it becomes obvious that he was the only choice for Tyler Durden.
The ads made it seem like the movie was about street boxing, instead of a intellectual and emotional ride through a man's psyche as he takes a strange path toward rebellion against consumer society. Together the two men spiral out of control and engage in competitive rivalry for love and power. This is the way films should be made. In fact, if you have seen it only once, you have missed something. He is clearly our surrogate, our introduction into this strange world and his wry observations on our consumer-obsessed culture are right on the money. I must change before I am forever stuck being the person that I am not.
Watch this movie, and watch it again with some of your more intelligent friends. It is about waking up and realizing that at some point in the past we've gone to the toilet and thrown up our dreams without even realizing that society has stuck its fingers down our throat. In a world where people are desensitized to everything around them, the physical contact of fighting wakes them up and makes them feel truly alive. These two movies share quite a bit in common - both were based on great books. Not just on a personal level on which I will not comment here except to say I'm now a major Palahniuk fan but also as a movie-watcher. One of the best movie endings I've seen. Unfortunately, it had a mismatched ad campaign.
The script was tight, the theme fascinating, the acting incredible especially Edward Norton, as one might expect , the direction inspired, and the cinematography stunning. This movie is dark and disturbing, however, it is equally smart and stylistic. I was seriously hoping the movie would receive Oscar nominations for Best Actor Norton , Best Screenplay, Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Picture. However when he associates himself with Tyler Brad Pitt he is dragged into an underground fight club and soap making scheme. The plot lured you in before turning you upside down, the acting was nothing short of perfect has there ever been a more memorable character than Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden? If you haven't read either, get to it.
Fight Club makes many bold statements against the modern consumer-driven society, and produces Norton's best performance and Pitt's second best 12 Monkeys. His work on 'Seven' and 'The Game' had me excited to see what he would do next, but I came to this movie expecting a stylish flick that offered a good plot and hopefully some good acting but what I got was so much, much more. When he meets Marla Helena Bonham Carter , another fake attendee of support groups, his life seems to become a little more bearable. When he meets Marla Helena Bonham Carter , another fake attendee of support groups, his life seems to become a little more bearable. As for it's ending, it doesn't rival 'The Sixth Sense' - it blows it away. Awards: Nominated for 1 Oscar. Yet Norton's deadpanned narration holds everything together and allows the viewer to get a handle on what's happening.
At first, it seems like an absurd request but after they pound on each other for a bit, a strange feeling overcomes them. However when he associates himself with Tyler Brad Pitt he is dragged into an underground fight club and soap making scheme. You'll cry, you'll laugh, you'll do all the cliches but most importantly you'll identify with every single thing on the screen.

Perhaps these comments will not make sense to the average movie goer who will dismiss this film--and, unfortunately, its premise--as another hollywood flick filled with gratuitous violence.
I view movies differently after seeing this movie, because it broke down doors. However when he associates himself with Tyler Brad Pitt he is dragged into an underground fight club and soap making scheme. This movie is literally the first time I ever came upon something that, at first sight seemed incredibly stylish, sophisticated and entertaining. I, however, couldn't wait to read the book after seeing this film. So, how is it that the film received no nominations? This is one of the most underrated movies I know.
The narrator also meets Tyler Durden Brad Pitt , a charismatic soap salesman whose straightforward honesty, candor and sleazy lounge-lizard outfits are a breath of fresh air. I had heard buzz about, a few of my friends raved about it for a few days, and I was convinced. Politicians will use this movie as a demonstration of careless and consequenceless violence in movies, and as a perfect example of what today's youth are being influenced by. Every time I watch this movie I notice something new about it, such is the depth of what is on the screen. It is one of the few films of the past five years that deserves to be seen multiple times.
I do not like this. When 'A Clockwork Orange' came out, it was met with mixed reviews, deemed too dark and violent, and is now considered a classic. Together the two men spiral out of control and engage in competitive rivalry for love and power. The film's narrator Edward Norton is an insignificant cog in the drab, corporate machine, dutifully doing his job and what he's told without question. Tyler and Marla will take care of this, and that is all I want to give away. When the narrator is exposed to the hidden agenda of Tyler's fight club, he must accept the awful truth that Tyler may not be who he says he is. When he meets Marla Helena Bonham Carter , another fake attendee of support groups, his life seems to become a little more bearable.
