To combat his inability to rest, he goes to various support groups (examples include men with testicular cancer and people with blood parasites) in order to cry and finally get some sleep. The Narrator meets a fellow tourist, whom he detests, named Marla Singer (Helena Bonham Carter). But his life changes forever when he meets a charismatic soap salesman: Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). Both Edward Norton and Brad Pitt give standout performances in this movie. Norton does all he can to make the audience sympathize with his exaggerated problem, with some measure of success.

Of course, the actors would have nothing to do without the very good screenplay by Jim Uhls (adapted from a novel…
