Movie Endings Explained - Fight Club (video)

Movie endings, they're usually pretty straight forward right? Everything pays off, the main characters learn something, and our heroes ride off into the sunset. Sometimes though, we don't get the typical ending from a movie, we get something much more nuanced, complex and open ended. The kind of endings that leave things up in the air for all of us to debate and theorise on until we're blue in the face. With Movie Endings Explained, we aim to delve into some of the more ambiguous and mysterious endings to films that have left audiences scratching their heads for years, and to attempt to explain them. In most cases, a definitive answer isn't really there, so we definitely want to hear from YOU on how you interpret the various endings we'll be discussing with this series.

This time we look at the 90s classic, David Fincher's FIGHT CLUB. While the pyschological satire boasted an all star cast with Brad Pitt, Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter, and is generally considered to be one of the best films of its decade, it didn't light the box office on fire. It was only when the movie hit DVD and VHS shelves that it really started to make some real money and reach a wider audience. What we all think of as a classic now, started its life as a cult film, and no doubt the highlight of the film, that made it so cool, was that twist. So while looking at the pivotal confrontation from the end of the film, we also delve into some of the clues that were planted along the way, and some of the more outlandish theories about the film!
