A nameless first person narrator Edward Norton attends support groups in attempt to subdue his emotional state and relieve his insomniac state. When he meets Marla Helena Bonham Carteranother fake attendee of support groups, his life seems to become a little more bearable. However when he associates himself with Tyler Brad Pitt he is dragged into an underground fight club and soap making scheme.
Together the two men spiral out of control and engage in competitive rivalry for love and power. When the palahnjuk 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. Taking the “Choose life,” anti-consumerism rant at the beginning of “Trainspotting,” and carrying it to its logical — albeit extreme — conclusion this is a big budget, mainstream film that takes a lot of risks by biting the hand that feeds it.
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. It provides him with an escape from his sleepless nights. That is, until Marla Singer Helena Bonham Cartera trashy chain-smoking poser, enters his life and upsets his routine. The narrator also meets Tyler Durden Brad Pitta charismatic soap salesman whose straightforward honesty, palahinuk and sleazy lounge-lizard outfits are a breath of fresh air.
One night, after the two men have bonded over beers, Tyler asks the narrator to hit him. At first, it seems like an absurd request but after they pound on each other for a bit, a strange feeling overcomes them.
They feel a kind of release and satisfaction at inflicting pain on one another. 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. Others soon join in and pretty soon Fight Club becomes an underground sensation. However, it becomes readily apparent that Tyler has more elaborate plans than just organizing brawls at the local bar. David Fincher has taken the dark, pessimistic worldview of “Seven” and married it with the clever plot twists and turns of “The Game” and assembled his strongest effort to date.
What makes “Fight Club” a subversive delight is not only its refreshing anti-corporate message but how it delivers said message. As Fincher has explained in interviews, you don’t really watch the film but rather download it. Its structure is extremely playful as it messes around with linear time to an incredible degree. The narrative bounces back and forth all over the place like a novel, or surfing on the Internet — even making a hilarious dead stop to draw attention to itself in a funny, interesting way that completely works.
Yet Norton’s deadpanned narration holds everything together and allows the viewer to get a handle on what’s happening.
This is the way films should be made. A film like this would have never been greenlighted by a major studio if Brad Pitt had not been attached to the project.
Once you see the film, it becomes obvious that he was the only choice for Tyler Durden. Like he did with “Kalifornia” and “Twelve Monkeys”, Pitt grunges himself down and disappears completely into his role to a frighteningly convincing degree.
During many of the brutal fight scenes, he is transformed into a bloody, pulpy mess that’ll surely have the “Legends of the Fall” fans running for the exits. It is an incredible performance — probably his best — for the simple fact that he becomes the character so completely. If Pitt has the flashy, gonzo role, Edward Norton is his perfect foil as the seemingly meek yet sardonic narrator.
It’s a deceptively palahhiuk performance as the last third of the film reveals but Norton nails it perfectly. 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. They are the perfect setup for Tyler’s introduction and his palahniik on the world which is clearly a call to arms of sorts, a manifesto that rejects the notion that we are what we own. And ultimately, that is what “Fight Club” tries to do.
The film is a cinematic punch to the head as it challenges the status quo and offers a wakeup call to people immersed in a materialistic world where those who have the most stuff, “win.
It’s almost as if the film is suggesting salvation through self-destruction. And it is these thought-provoking ideas that makes “Fight Club” a dangerously brilliant film that entertains as well as enlightens.

The BBFC argued that these cuts were made because of “excessively sustained violence” and “an indulgence in the excitement of beating a defenseless man’s face into a pulp”. Interestingly however, prior to the release of the film, the BBFC was petitioned to ban the film the film altogether, but they refused, disputing claims that it contained “dangerously instructive information” and could “encourage anti-social behavior”. In fact, they actually came to the defense of the film, pointing out that “the film as a whole is – quite clearly – critical and sharply parodic of the amateur fascism which in part it portrays.
Its central theme of male machismo and the anti-social behavior that flows from it is emphatically rejected by the central character in the concluding reels.
