“Fight Club” (1999) is an American film that tells the story of an ultimately Schizophrenic man who finds emotional release by living life through an alter ego who begins to assert control of his life. This scene is the confrontation between the unnamed lead character (Edward Norton) and his alter ego Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) when each personality tries to reclaim dominance. The extent of the characters insanity is shown by the shots of surveillance footage, which remind the audience that while most of the shots are of visceral combat between two men, in actuality the events are the internal struggle of one man.
