    Some movies deserve to be discussed, some movies raise topics that deserve to be discussed. This movie however, in my opinion does not.

    True, this message should just be enjoyed as the piece of brilliance(sp?) it is.

    My #1 movie of all time.

    The book was ok, not his best work, thought it was his 1st book. The movie is a great adaptaion of the novel, the extras on the DVD are great, commentary by Chuck Palahniuk & Jim Uhls is hilarious.

    The movie I'm waiting for is Invisible Monsters.

    best movie ever!!!

    I read the book too, I thought it was equally as good, just in different ways.

    fight club is pure anarchy and chaos at its finest.

    I've heard of several chapters of real fight clubs around since the movie.

    I, however, am too handsom and charming to waste my time punching strangers..

    lagers with ladies is lovely...

    I don't think it was about chaos, it was more about not conforming to society and the daily norms.

    Here's a question for the fans:
    What's the narrator's real name?

    That could be a trick question........

    But it's Tyler Durden.

    If you look at what the fight club evolved into, you'd see that its not anarchy and chaos because they're following the rules of tyler durden. Hes created a society outside of that which we know, but its still a society. If anything I'd say the movie is perhaps about the imposibility of creating true anarchy, especially within the boundaries of an established society. And what I mean by an established society is the one that the 'sheep' exist in, the one that the fight club fought back against.

    But I'm not going to start a debate on the moral of the story, that would definatly overload the board [​IMG]

    Ed Norton....or...Tyler Durden

    Ed Norton was listed in the ending credits as the *narrator* and he was also technically supposed to be Tyler Durden....so thats my answer

    I think the book said it best

    ......the story of a god-forsaken young man who discovers that his rage at living in a world filled with failure and lies cannot be pacified by an empty consumer culture. Relif for him and his disenfranchised peers comes in the form of secret after-hours boxing matces held in the basements of bars. Fight Club is the brainchild of Tyler Durden, who thinks he has found a way for himself and his friends to live beyond their confining and stultufying lives. But in Tyler's world there are no rules, no limits, no brakes.....
