(Fight Club 1999); when he mentions the growing relationship between Tyler and
Marla; and when he talks about the destructiveness of Project Mayhem.
But in many cases too, words of the actual actors take over. In some places, especially
where the narrator is talking, the dialogues are brief and to the point, just added to move
the story forward at that particular point in time. Take for instance the opening scene at
the support centre for men with testicular cancer where Bob Paulson, weeping, chips in
a question to the protagonist, 'Are we still men' (Fight Club 1999), while the
protagonist/narrator's voice, is telling the story in the background.
In other scenes in the movie the dialogues are longer, starting with the time the
protagonist meets Marla Singer, and discovers that she is faking her reason for being at
the therapy session. They hold a conversation after the session. Other longer dialogue
scenes include when the narrator meets Tyler Durden, the time the Fight Club begins,
and the scene in the bathroom where the narrator and Tyler have a talk.
For the fighting in the film, the actors were expected to show real fighting skills.
Light and Colour
Fight Club has good art direction (Linson 2004). The director, David Fincher, gave a
vivid effect to the colour. As a result of this, people appear kind of shiny. Colours were
also added to some nighttime shootings.
A Super 35 format was used in shooting Fight Club. The narrator's scenes without Tyler
Durden, the scenes are casual to look at. Those scenes which have Tyler in them have
more visual effects, looking more real than is normal. Many parts of the film were shot
at night, while those that were taken during the day...

The essay will reflect on major historical events that led to equality in school systems amongst black and white children, culminating in the 1954 supreme court ruling that allowed black children to share the same school facilities as the white children.
The students in this movie show various types of communication such as stereotype, perception, self-esteem and self-concept. It is an example of a group full of various characters stuck in detention, figuring out either how to get out of their Saturday detention or how to make the most of their day.
Fortunately, for the country, there emerged an alternative from the California counter-culture in the nineteenth century, where some members of political anti-corporate protesters voiced their disagreements and created a food chain outside of the existing system.
These and many other readings are all valid, but then so is the existential reading. Especially in the conception of the central character of Jack/Tyler whose existence absolutely precedes his essence.
Contrary to expectations, the fight club of the movie isn't what the film is really about; it really stands as a metaphor for fighting for expression and identity.
Right from the very start of the narration, the main character was apparently experiencing insomnia, one of the Eros problems belonging to the schizophrenia category. Schizophrenic as he was, the main character of the movie negatively thinks of his lack of sleep to be leading to pain or death, which a doctor contrastingly confirms that it is impossible.
From watching the movie, one can classify the narrator as having a Thanatos personality as opposed to having an Eros one. Early on in the story, we are made aware that the narrator suffers from insomnia – a sign that the person is suffering from the disorder. He suffers from depression and lack of fulfillment regarding his career.
Like so much new social discourse, it is caught in the impossible space between asserting social determinism on the one hand, and claiming individual autonomy and free will on the other. Palahniuk, the author of Fight Club, recognizes that the concept of internalized oppression continually implies the likelihood of one's somehow transcending or mastering the admittedly deeply oppressive system by which the main characters are articulated as a sexed subject.
The narrator is experiencing contradictory powers in his life. These powers are caused by the imposition of hegemonic ideas about masculinity and they are aggravated by the ideas of disparity between his inherited language or notions of masculinity
