What does the fight club tell us?
The whole things were been happened is the end of the ’90s. Machines are started to replace to human place. The value of being human is decreasing in these times. If we watch scenes in the narrator’s Office, we can see criticism about that situation. Workers do not have value for employers eyes. Or if we look to the narrator’s home and his lifestyle, we can perceive criticism about modernism and consumerism. The narrator is wasting his own money to have more chic furniture. It is a good example of criticism of consumerism. The fight club is one of the most popular movies that criticize the system. There are many examples for this subtitles Marla and Tyler’s relationship or dialogues but this article is getting too much longer, I don’t want to bore you.
The narrator has a monotonous life that he hates. He has insomnia and hasn’t slept for six months. The narrator’s biggest desire is that having stylish furniture. But they are not satisfied with him. Edward Norton plays him. He plaid to many charters. And he takes part in many movies.
Tyler who is a soapmaker lives in a run-down house. Also, he has many jobs. He is a projectionist and waiters(at night). Tyler has a very complicated personality. He does not care about anything. He hangs out bohemian.
When we saw Marla first time, she is smoking a cigarette in a cancer group. The bells start ringing in that scene. Marla’s character has many similarities with Tyler’s. Both of them do not have worries about life and doesn’t afraid to die. For instance, she has cancer whereas, she is smoking all time.
MY OPINIONS ABOUT THE MOVİE
Fight Club is my favourite movie. Let’s talk about why I love fight club the most determinative factor why fight club is my favourite movie is that fight club has too much witty criticism. The Fight Club bravely criticizes the community and some ideological currents like modernism and consumerism. This is prices for me because it is hard to do this. And fight club has an unexpected end. Watching this movie was an enjoyable experience for me. Now, Fight Club one of the best movies of David Fincher. After 20 years it became a cult movie of modern times.
