The film "Fight Club" is the same plot as the Bob Dylan song "All Along The Watchtower".

No video, just sound. Lyrics: "There must be some way out of here" said the joker to the thief "There's too much confusion", I can't get no relief Businessme...

+R McMurphy It's amongst the best. To the extent it has changed my outlook on life a fair bit, the title makes it sound like its just a mindless sort of action film about fights, yet it has deep philosophy that genuinely, like I said, changed my outlook on life. Maybe the same for you, maybe not. Watch it.

It fits somehow, but I'm pretty sure it talks about War

No mention, but the song doesn't have to mention war to talk about it. Maybe my English level doesn't help, but this "conversation" between the Joker and the Thief seems to me as two completely different kind of people fighting the same war beside each other. And then they both agreed that place is not where they belong, like saying they want to go home. That is just a point of view (of a foreign)

+Arthur Perez, yes, I agree. It's the same kind of conversation as between the two men in Fight Club, both dissatisfied and restless.

+Arthur Perez The song (usually performed by Jimi Hendrix) is and has been used as a soundtrack for so much Vietnam War footage that it probably becomes associated with war for many people who have heard it in that context. I think he definitely intended to evoke feelings of impending doom or cataclysm and purposely left it to the listener to "fill in the blanks" rather than actually telling the story... many people have pointed out how the lyrics have similarities with passages about the sudden and complete Fall of Babylon from Ch. 21 of the Book of Isaiah, and while there are too many parallels between them for it to be coincidence, I don't think that the song is supposed to be "about" that either.

Wow man, great interpretation, I had to write down my own interpretation for an English literature class about contemporary writers. Far from your interpretation though, and I think this is the great about this song/poem.

As well as Battlestar Galactica!!!!!

+Arthur Perez I think it was trying to argue the case of pointless war being pointless
