Fight Club is perhaps the world's best movie about schizophrenia. It reflects humanity, as everyone can see themselves represented through Jack as well as Tyler Durden's shadow: those of us in life are Jack, enslaved by materialism, a tedious job and life, while life's dejection constrains our ability to breathe. However, we lack the ability to change and are still deluded into thinking that we can become Tyler Durden and want to do something that we are unable to do.
This movie is successful not only due to its plot, but mainly because of the director's editing and expression methods. The movie features various kinds of clues suggesting that Tyler and Jack are the same person, which is why this is an entertaining movie.
