Ah yes, The Pixies, baby. Y'know, I have this movie to thank for formally introducing me to the band and it's music. I had heard OF them before, but when I heard the closing song, I was like, "I have GOT to get one of their albums!" So I did. And now they're reunited...crazy, eh?

this movie is really insane and freaky!!!!It'll make you think and analyze about the life that you have....I think of fight club not as a movie but i think of it as an agitating and revolutionary art transformed into the reel....I hope i could be as strong as TYLER and as sacrificial as he is...and as wise as he is....

How many people formed their own fight club after watching this?

I loved this movie... I really loved it.. The phylosophy behind it just thrilled me and the feeling was freaky, as I really lived into the roll of the guy with split personalities. During the movie I was like "omg.. oh shit.. haha.. oh no.." ... It was an emotional blast in the darkest, freakiest, mean, evil way. Tyler was a dreammm. Literally. :P

Ever have experienced a real loathing for the corporate world? Then this film should do it for you! And Brad Pitt is divine. As ever!

question.......when edward norton shot himself in the mouth to kill his evil side, the bullet exit came out from brad pitts back of the head. edward nortons exit wound was on the side of his face. he killed brad pitt, yet he survived.......i think this part was poorly done. any comments out there?????..coca

No i think its a sort of metaphorical thing...the willingness to pull the trigger excorcising his personal demon (tyler).
The book is great so much darker!

Indeed. Tyler told him over and over again to let go of things. By actually being willing to end his life, he proved that he WAS willing to let go of EVERYTHING, thus he no longer needed Tyler . . . which 'killed' him.
And people . . . while beating the hell out of each other CAN be fun, it is not a road to enightenment. Generally speaking. One of the points that I got from this movie (and I don't know if I was SUPPOSED to, but I did anyway) was that the winner - the hero - the guy YOU as an audience are supposed to sympathize with and learn from realized that the herd mentality of his own followers was even worse than what they were fighting against. Not to say that corporate America (or whatever country you're in) is A-OK or anything, but believe what you believe because you believe it, and instead of gathering with a bunch of people who already agree with you, challenge yourself to take it out to those who don't.
But don't necessarily punch them in the face. I did NOT say that.

Three words: Brad Pitt's Abs. Enough said, conversation over.

what i can never get is how many critics panned fight club for its violence and the elements of fascism. HELLO! this movie if anything was showing how stupid fascism is! when Rober Paulson gets killed during project mayhem and they're all chanting and Norton is mad at them because they dont see how how bad things have gotten and how out of hand its got! theres an example, this movie is just so different i think thats why it appeals to so many people.

Facism? What the guy`s in the soap street house forming a little brownshirts type clan? I guess that could be construed as a little facist!

I find a Zen- like quality to this movie.

Best movie of the 90's, hands down.
Fight Club manages to simultaneously depress and inspire me, to such an extent that I almost feel myself dividing into separate Tyler and 'Jack'-like entities when watching it.
One more thing, it sickens me to the core every time I hear someone call it an 'action movie'. Like say, Scarface, it's become cult amongst slack-jawed dumbass kids who whoop and jump about during the scenes of violence, and this has detracted from its critical appeal. Action...come on, how is it fair that the most effective philosophical black comedy in decades gets stuck with the ultimate B-movie genre tag due to what is basically an extended metaphor.

Everytime I watched this movie (lost count now) I find scenes that portray Norton of being alone...with Pitt as his mental sidekick. Great movie.

We all have a little Tyler Durden in us.
It is someone we, deep down inside, want to be but are to afraid (or lazy or shit like that) to become. You first have to let go of something to become who you really are. A materialistic fetish is just one of the things Ed's character had to get rid of. "The stuff you own just end up owning you." - Tyler
I loved the movie. Ed and Brad makes a good team as well. "Aaagh! My ear!!!!!!"

Have you found your power animal?
>>By Honey Bunny (Sunday, 18 Jun 2006 21:17)
when we know not our parents espestially the father and by the way respect, it we find ourselves inclined to revolt against god who is the "extention" of the father and thus be at the mercy of our animal and bestial impulses from one way and to the manipulation from the mass media on the other way...that is the catalizing idea that leads ed norton to schizofrenia.
the movie is just great and brilliant and the themes is just rich and contemporary. like it!!

I didn't really like this movie the first time I watched it. The second time though I started to understand the message of the movie and now I love it.
Fuck 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." Tyler Durden.
I think I am going to have to go watch the movie again now...

Yeah, Fight Club is great, but it doesn't exist in a vacuum. Has anyone noticed that FC makes many allusions to Ingmar Bergman's Persona? The obscene film splicing, the suppressed other personality in my own head, the film coming off the sprockets and melting in the projector, the wild sexuality--all these come out of Persona, and for good reasons. And another movie, among many, that alludes to Persona is The Talented Mr. Ripley. If you are REALLY interested in Fight Club and want to understand more of what is in it, you should see these other films too.
