49 Best Fight Club Quotes – #17 Don’t Miss

An enigmatic action cum psychological movie with great cinematography, its interpretation has eluded moviegoers for years. The opening scene which provides the background for the opening credits is visually arresting, with a hyper-realistic rendition of the electron microscopic view starting from the interior of the human brain with neurons and axons ….from the inside out. It culminates in an unnerving close-up view of the cold barrel of the gun. The fight scenes are brutal and the psychology is perplexing, not only for the Edward Norton character who suffers from a dissociative identity disorder but for the moviegoer as well….. where the delineation between fantasy and reality is blurred, shrouding the film in mystery. See our latest post on best quotes from dark knight rises movie.

It is a tale about the pointless and blind consumerism that fails to fill the empty void of people’s lives. The raw determinism to end it all. Although the violence in the film is too bloody gruesome and grossly ruthless. It serves as a thematic device to show desperation and as an outlet for the banality of existence. The Brad Pitt character’s occupation as a projectionist is deliberate since he is only a projection..a phantasm…of the Edward Norton character. The film is highly allegorical with plenty of subtexts and metaphors …. an enjoyable Easter egg hunt experience for an avid cinephile. Check out this post from GoodReads for more.
