American Psycho Reviews
Bale plays Patrick Bateman, the son of a wealthy Wall Street financier, is pursing his own career with his father's firm. Bateman is addicted to success, firm, and style. He is also a serial killer who murders people without a reason. He then kills a man named Paul Allen (Jared Leto), who a man named Donald Kimble (William Dafoe) is staying on Bateman's trail so that Bateman's mask of studied distant cool begins to fall apart. American Psycho is a good movie.
It was never going to be easy to adapt Bret Easton Ellis's novel as most of the shit that Bateman does in it wouldn't get pass the censors.
Mary Harron does a fine job of getting the mix of horror and comedy from page to screen.
Bale steals the film and IMO his best performance to date.
Bateman's love of shit music is brillantly used befor his sorid violent acts. The Huey Lewis & the News scene is one of the darkest pieces of comedy I have ever seen. So funny with Bale on fire.
Only complaints. Lack of reference of designer labels and it is a little short on running time.
It's hip to be square.
