American Psycho Reviews
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.
'American Psycho' is a dark comedy that at times struggles to find a tone and stick with it; but with fantastic dialogue and a truly excellent performance by Christian Bale it succeeds as not just a comedy about a serial killer, but a social commentary on the wealthy elite in general.
