Don't know who this O'neal is and I sure as hell won't look him because he sounds like the worst comedian ever... a black man making white people jokes how original.

No, he was making a joke. He's a comedian and that shit was hilarious

You mean he was a comedian, died not too long ago. Used to listen to him whenever he went on Opie & Anthony, I thought he was pretty funny.

basically he IS Tyler Durden. You never actually hear Ed Norton's character name mentioned in the movie. Brad Pitt's character is what he aspires to be in every way but it is really him subconsciously making those aspirations reality

I used to love this movie, but they destroyed it for me . I've looked up tons of Patrice O'neal youtube clips, but never seen this one. Thank you sir! Repped.

I loved Fight Club and Patrice was one of the funniest, realest comics ever. I don't care if he hated Fight Club.

Don't feel bad. There's plenty of shitty movies that I love.

I already displayed my love for Cloverfield, and I must've played 2012 like a zillion times. I saw it back to back when I got it, then saw it again 2 more times that same weekend and have seen it many more times since.

I LOVE ID4. but he's spot on.

i think his point was it speaks to black people, or a subset of black people. in the same way fight club speaks to white people. it is a vision or a desire to be something you're not.

not sure how to answer the OP though? what exactly was confusing? it was pretty straight forward in that it is all explained at the end.

How the **** do you not get that movie?
That is one of the easiest "twisted ending" movies there is.

The first half of the movie was great. The second half falls apart.

Patrice O'neal is hilarious and that's coming from the guy with Larry Bird is his avatar. Even when I don't agree with his take on things, I usually like how he states them. His stand up set Elephant in the Room is amazing.


His take on Radiohead's Creep is a classic.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1qKy4cMPUI

I agree with him at 3:00


Also his critique of Fight Club (which I swear I'm not talking about) is that is a fantasy movie about "a better me." And Scarface isn't a fantasy movie?

You understand that Tyler Durden doesn't exist right? It's all in Ed Norton's characters mind. He made him up. Sometimes he's him, sometimes he's Tyler Durden. Maybe that's why it's confusing to you, because sometimes Tyler Durden is doing the talking to people. But really, it's Ed Norton's character.

One man, two minds.

I'm pretty sure at the end of the movie when he has his moment of clarity there is a clear scene that shows Norton fighting himself and kicking his own ass that first night in front of the bar.
