Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
It's hard to summon up enthusiasm for a performance so rooted in bloody banality. I mean, as Patrick, Bale's most emotionally pressing dilemma is: Chainsaw or butcher knife?
This coming from a guy that really likes Brenden Fraiser movies.

I think you're off on this one, Desson. Bale's emotional strife clearly comes through amidst the thick swabs of satire. He is a character that cares about nothing but materialism, but yearns for something substantial (i.e. a real relationship), because he feels ostracized from the world.

Yes that is his most emotionally pressing dilemma, because he's a sociopath who doesn't have emotions

that's kind of the point
The idea behind his lack of emotion is the satire Ellis wrote in the direction of Bateman's demographic in the late '80s. Roger Ebert put it into words best: Not all men are crazed killers, only ones who do business. Or something of that nature.

Stop trying to realate "Psycho" with "A Clockwork Orange"! They may look similar (the serial killer, with no emotions) but one is not the COPY of the other!

That's kind of the point of the character. He openly admits that he is emotionless.

Butcher knife, obviously.

i think your jealous because you don't live on the American Gardens building on West 81st street. I also think your upset that you can't do a thousand stomach crunches.
