movie facts

Its rise to cult classic status has made Fight Club a favorite film to sink your teeth into. Because the novel had primarily included anti-consumerist themes, director David Fincher thought it well to appropriate consumerist themes like putting a Starbucks coffee in every scene. Another allusion to recurring images on-screen is the character of Tyler Durden being present four times before he was officially introduced to viewers. Watching Fight Club requires highly observant eyes because the film also has some “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” scenes. On the plane, when Edward Norton’s character is introduced to Tyler Durden, he was previously sitting next to a middle-aged woman, and the emergency exit sign initially depicted a female, but when Tyler came to sit beside him, the illustration had changed to a male. Another instance is when Tyler and Norton’s character recruit members for their fight club – some of the men that they simply walk by on the street is next seen to be participating in the fight club’s activities.
