In 1996, author Chuck Palahniuk published his first novel "Fight Club," which was initially only supposed to be a seven-page short story. The novel follows the narrator who's working as a product recall specialist for a car company and begins experiencing insomnia from stress. Then, per the advice of his doctor, he begins visiting support groups for ailments he's not afflicted with, which helps his insomnia. It's there where he meets a woman named Marla Singer, who also visits these groups under false pretenses. Shortly after, the narrator meets Tyler Durden, a charismatic and extreme mystery man. The two strike up a friendship and eventually decide to form an underground fight club.

The novel was adapted into a feature film in 1999, with actor Edward Norton playing the narrator, Brad Pitt playing Tyler Durden and Helena Bonham Carter playing Marla Singer. The film earned mixed reviews from critics, however, it's since become a cult sensation. It's often regarded as one of the most heavily discussed and controversial films of all time, as well as an innovator in cinematic style.
