In the car crash scene, Tyler is driving with The Narrator in the front passenger seat. The car flips while going down the embankment. After the car stops moving and finishes upside down, Tyler (Pitt) crawls out of the passenger set, crawls across the exposed bottom of the car and pulls The Narrator (Norton) out of the driver's seat. This may be because The Narrator is actually driving, since he and Tyler are one and the same. See more »
After watching this movie I was totally filled with enthusiasm. Fight Club is definitly Fincher's best movie even better than se7en. It's not only the story but the optics which fascinated me. When I had seen it for the second time I could see this movie with the knowledge of the conclusion which is really fascinating as you'll see Fight Club in a totally different perspective. Also great about Fight Club is its soundtrack performed by the Dust Brothers and especially the song 'Where is my mind' by the Pixies which really fit to the end of the movie. Unfortunately Fight Club didn't have much success in Germany but anyway the movie got best reviews of the German press. I also have to mention the brilliance of Ed Norton and Brad Pitt who plays best in roles in which he performs the villain. But it's quiet amazing what Edward Norton is able to do - he is just overwhelming. For that role he has to get the oscar.
