Fight Club 1999 Themes:-
Director David Fincher said Fight Club is a coming of age film, like the 1967 film The Graduate but for people in their 30s. Fincher described the Narrator as an “everyman”; the character is identified in the script as “Jack”, but left unnamed in the film.
Fincher outlined the Narrator’s background: “He’s tried to do everything he was taught to do, tried to fit into the world by becoming the thing he isn’t.” He cannot find happiness, so he travels on a path to enlightenment in which he must “kill” his parents, god, and teacher. By the start of the film, he has “killed off” his parents.
With Tyler Durden, he kills his god by doing things they are not supposed to do. To complete the process of maturing, the Narrator has to kill his teacher, Tyler Durden. The character is a 1992s inverse of the Graduate archetype: “a guy who does not have a world of possibilities in front of him.
he has no possibilities, he literally cannot imagine a way to change his life.” He is confused and angry, so he responds to his environment by creating Tyler Durden, a Nietzschean Übermensch, in his mind. While Tyler is who the Narrator wants to be.
he is not empathetic and does not help the Narrator face decisions in his life “that are complicated and have moral and ethical implications”. Fincher explained: ” can deal with the concepts of our lives in an idealistic fashion, but it doesn’t have anything to do with the compromises of real life as modern man knows it.
Which is: you’re not really necessary to a lot of what’s going on. It’s built, it just needs to run now.” While studio executives worried that Fight Club was going to be “sinister and seditious”, Fincher sought to make it “funny and seditious” by including humor to temper the sinister element.
Fight Club 1999 Production:-
The novel Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk was published in 1996. Before its publication, a Fox Searchlight Pictures book scout sent a galley proof of the novel to creative executive Kevin McCormick.
The executive assigned a studio reader to review the proof as a candidate for a film adaptation, but the reader discouraged it. McCormick then forwarded the proof to producers Lawrence Bender and Art Linson, who also rejected it.
Producers Josh Donen and Ross Bell saw potential and expressed interest. They arranged unpaid screen readings with actors to determine the script’s length, and an initial reading lasted six hours. The producers cut out sections to reduce the running time, and they used the shorter script to record its dialogue.
