About this movie

Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) is a Wall Street yuppie, obsessed with success, status and style, with a stunning fiancee (Reese Witherspoon). He is also a psychotic killer who rapes, murders and dismembers both strangers and acquaintances without provocation or purpose. Based on the controversial novel, the film offers a sharp satire to the dark side of yuppie culture in the '80s, while setting forth a vision that is both terrifying and chilling.

Transgressional fiction reaches its apex with American Psycho. Bret Easton Ellis' gory satire could have so easily been completely misunderstood and presented as a horror film. This couldn't be farther away from that genre. In fact, she translates the two MOST horrific characters in the book, Phil Collins and Huey Lewis and the News, with subtlety and class that epitomize the gory, gruesome, genteel 80s.

Director Mary Harron's film, adapted from Bret Easton Ellis' novel, is a deep delve into the shallow and, yes, psychotic mind of Patrick Bateman as he frets over the inadequacies of his business cards and goes on terribly bloody killing sprees. It's horrifying, but if you can stomach it American Psycho is also a fascinating look at the American psyche.
