10 Great Revelation Scenes

10. Fight Club (1999)

This revelation scene is both jarring to the narrator (Edward Norton) and the audience. Up until this point, the narrator is influenced by the stronger, better looking and more ferocious Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). In the last scene of the film, however, when Tyler has the narrator at gunpoint, the narrator knowing that his alter-ego is in fact Tyler, he realizes that if he shoots himself, there is a chance that the potentially lethal act may destroy Tyler. And that’s exactly what happens. The bullet passes through the Narrator’s cheek, leaving him alive, but what he sees is a bullet wound in the back of Tyler’s head. In one scene the Narrator is able to defeat the evil part within himself, and finally, Tyler is dead.
