American Psycho (2000)

A wealthy New York investment banking executive hides his alternate psychopathic ego from his co-workers and friends as he escalates deeper into his illogical, gratuitous fantasies.


I have to return some video tapes.

I love the first 45 minutes, when Christian Bale gets to flaunt his brilliant acting. After that I feel like the movie doesn't hold up.

As everyone's remarked, Christian Bale knocks it out of the park. Watching his Bat-work prior to this, I can't help but draw comparisons to Bruce Wayne as socialite. Towards the end, he's almost confused by his numb response to his empty life. The film admirably simmers along a twisted undercurrent of what happens when the elite try and compose themselves out of the constituent parts of the vapid cultural wreckage, and how they destroy themselves once they hit the top, equally typically. Hearing the constant name-dropping made me feel like I was in a pristine, sterile meta-maze, and the grue that ended up getting all over the walls was highly welcome. Not multi-dimensional enough to warrant a recommendation, but still worth a look, and in no way comparable to any kind of slasher flick, despite appearances.
(And it figures that Bateman wouldn't like early Genesis either.)
