Fight Club

Question: When 'Jack' gets the call from the arson detective, in the background of the guy's office, on the notice board, is a sticker of a monkey's head. The sticker is the same colour as the subliminal images of Tyler (dominantly red) and half of the brain area of the skull is faded white. I was wondering if anyone knew if this was symbolic of Tyler taking over 'Jack' or was put there on purpose and what it serves as in those shots?

Answer: On the DVD commentary, the director implies that this is a symbol of the Space Monkeys, Tyler's army. It shows that the Space Monkeys are beginning to infiltrate even the police station, as seen later.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the film, when the narrator and Tyler are fighting in the basement, Tyler slams the narrator's head into the wall by the van. For a split second, before the shot changes, the 'concrete' wall visibly buckles inwards. (02:03:35)
