While a standard desk job may sound like a good job to some, for others, the boring monotony is the last thing they could ever think of doing.
In the 1999 movie Fight Club, The Narrator (Edward Norton) is an average Joe with an average office job. Then he meets Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) who by day makes soap and by night, is looking to start an underground fight club. What starts out as a diversion from the drudgery of his every day life turns his life upside down.
This movie is sort of quirky, but the backbone of the narrative is the story of an ordinary man who has an extraordinary adventure into the unknown.
I recommend it.
