Fight Club Study Guide

Fight Club by David Fincher

Based on a book of the same name, Fight Club is a psychological film of an unnamed everyman as he breaks away from society to fulfill a desire for violence and chaos. Inspired by his own split personality, Tyler Durden, the man sees his underground fighting circles, created to satisfy a repressed bloodlust, spin out of control into the domestic terrorist outfit Project Mayhem. The film comments on capitalism and masculinity in America, being the tale of a repressed man taking the escape from corporate sanitization to its logical extreme.
