A bloody, gruesome black comedy that's not for kids.

A brave adaptation of a bracing book.
March 28, 2011
The slick satire cleverly equates materialism, narcissism, misogyny, and classism with homicide, but you may laugh so loud at the protagonist that you won't be able to hear yourself laughing with him.

American Psycho is nearly perfect for what it is, but before we go on, we should ask what that actually amounts to. Can something with so rigid a thesis be a real work of art?

It needs to be seen and appreciated, like a serpent in a glass cage.
November 20, 2010
The movie is elegantly shot, but based on what's on screen, it's hard to tell what motivated Mary Harron to direct this emotionally vapid feature

Mary Harron asks what's more unnerving - exaggerated, imagined violence or vacuous realities some wish to be real, psychosis as much in the construct as the character. Thus, "Psycho's" savagery goes beyond a simple screed against 1980s excess and greed.

Harron's Psycho reps an impressive reclaiming of dubious material.

One can picture Kubrick handling this material with a similar elegant malevolence.

It's a highly entertaining movie with enough edgy humor to prickle our senses.

The film makes wonderfully unsettling entertainment; crucially -- and gloriously -- Bale nails Bateman with a sublimely dead-eyed and deadpan performance.
June 24, 2005
Mary Harron and Christian Bale create an almost magical balance between the tragic and comic elements of this story.
April 9, 2005
Production designer Gideon Ponte gives a terrific look to the film, with a hard, ultramodern design that lends sterility to Patrick's personal killing field.

January 10, 2003
American Psycho connects strongly in the moment, and has proven memorable over time, for the vivid impressions it makes in tone as well as look, its potent blends of sound and image, its unusual if erratic points of entry into potentially stock cha

It's smart, frightening and funny.

At once a sharp satire and an earnest study in the deadly consequences of moral vacancy.
