R | | Drama
An insomniac office worker, looking for a way to change his life, crosses paths with a devil-may-care soapmaker, forming an underground fight club that evolves into something much, much more.
Three detectives in the film are named Detective Andrew, Detective Kevin, and Detective Walker. 'Andrew Kevin Walker' was the writer of the David Fincher film Se7en (1995) (also starring Brad Pitt), and did some uncredited work on this movie's script.
With insomnia, nothing's real. Everything's far away. Everything's a copy of a copy of a copy.
When the Narrator is being held down on the table at the police station, a boom mic is clearly visible at the top of the screen for a few seconds.
The three police officers that try to cut off the narrator's testicles are credited as Officer Andrew, Officer Kevin and Officer Walker. Andrew Kevin Walker is the screenwriter who wrote Se7en (1995) and 8MM (1999). He also worked uncredited on David Fincher's The Game (1997) and on one of the drafts of Fight Club (1999). However, his contribution to the Fight Club script was not enough to warrant a credit by current WGA rules. Director David Fincher named the officers Andrew, Kevin and Walker, as a way of surreptitiously giving Walker a credit.
