Which of these Fight Club quotes is your favorite?
As you can see from the quotes above, Fight Club is a darker movie and focuses a lot on unhappiness. There are many twists in the plot and (Spoiler Alert) we come to find out that the Narrator and Tyler are one and the same and that the Narrator has dissociated personalities. He suffers from insomnia, and when the Narrator is awake he is the Narrator, but when he believes he is asleep he becomes Tyler.
As Fight Club continues to grow, the Narrator’s other personality (Tyler) starts to take over and takes the Fight Club members and leads them in engaging in illegal activities. We see the battle for the lead personality between the Narrator and Tyler getting more intense as the movie moves on.
