Movie Analysis: Fight Club the Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

They need their aggression to be released but fail to do it, as they are afraid to be judged by others. If the person is alone he will be misunderstood, but in a group of co-thinkers he maintains inner strength and becomes open. It was used by Tyler who manipulated peoples' nature in his private purposes. Tyler's phenomenon is obvious: his ideas are simple and close to people who had experienced aggression. He doesn't have any political or social program, he doesn't support any political opposition to American system: either Communists or neo-Fascists. He doesn't need it as it will limit the number of his supporters, moreover all those ideas are well-known and are well-known to be false ones. Tyler's one is new, universal and is too temptating not to be followed.

This doctrine proclaimed by Tyler has a danger for a society as it may result chaos and anarchy. A group of fanatics who have the only aim to fear everyone by terror is very dangerous. The example of international terrorism is a brilliant one to demonstrate the circumstances anarchy may cause.

is guilty in creating this threat, proving a well know physics law about entropy (or disorder), which grows in isolated space. Is there any exit in such kind of situation? It may seem that nothing can help a person as frustration occupies his mind leaving no space for anything else. Still the author has another idea: narrator's panacea is love. Love is the only thing which can help him to survive. Love is the only thing that saves him. A strange girl named Marla, who also is disillusioned by routine life, attends the same support groups the narrator does. But different to the narrator, she has inner strength and confidence and has an opportunity to make choices, while Jack is enslaved by his alter ago embodiment in the face of Tyler Durden. If Jack had been able to see that Marla is that very person he needed, movie would have had another end. In fact, Marla was that messiah the narrator needed, but not Tyler who failed to finish his mission.
