Fight Club was on my list of movies to watch over winter break. It’s one of those films that leave you confused and perplexed when it ends. Usually if I have time, I will rematch the movie and look for hidden clues I missed this first time. Sometimes I will google reviews and other peoples articles about the movies meaning.
If you have never seen fight club, I high recommend it. Stop reading this and go watch it. Now.
If you have seen it, then you have witnessed one of the most self-realizing movies of all time. I think this movie says a lot of society and people. I was very confused throughout the entire thing until the very end, when it was made less confusing. Again, you will have to rewatch this film again in order to really understand.
Anyways, I probably shouldn’t be talking about this too much.
But if you want more insight, this is a great article about the true meaning. http://www.libertariannews.org/2012/08/11/ive-been-having-trouble-writing-lately/
“You are not your job. You are not how much you have in the bank. You are not the contents of your wallet. You are not your khakis. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. What happens first is you can’t sleep. What happens then is there’s a gun in your mouth. And what happens next is you meet Tyler Durden. Let me tell you about Tyler. He had a plan. In Tyler we trusted. Tyler says the things you own, end up owning you. It’s only after you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything. Fight Club represents that kind of freedom. First rule of Fight Club: You do not talk about Fight Club. Second rule of Fight Club: You do not talk about Fight Club. Tyler says self-improvement is masturbation. Tyler says self-destruction might be the answer.”
