About Tyler Durden From Fight Club

Inside all of us are two wolves, one good and one evil. They fight, and the one that wins is the one you feed. We see this battle play out throughout Fight Club. Within the Narrator lives his good wolf that’s grown soft. There is also an emerging evil wolf in Tyler Durden that is continuing to be fed, so what can we expect to happen?

Fight Club was directed by David Fincher and written by Jim Uhls. It is based on a novel of the same by written by Chuck Palahniuk. The film stars Brad Pitt (Tyler Durden) Edward Norton (Narrator), Meat Loaf (Bob), and Helena Bonham Carter (Marla). As the narrator struggles to keep his grip on a reality he knows, his alternate personality emerges, showing him how bringing down society can be a beacon of hope for others that feel likewise.

The Narrator must determine how he can manage to keep the world around him in balance before Tyler takes over completely and leaves it scorched forever. It is argued by many if Tyler is evil or just what reality needs. To that we let you draw your own conclusions. In a psychological thriller as good as they come we present our favorite Tyler Durden quotes.
