Details

Adapted from Brett Easton Ellis’s controversial novel, American Psycho is the ultimate critique of American ideals, narcissism and obsession. Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) is a Wall Street executive who spends his days obsessing over his own image and competing against colleagues in relentless one-upmanship. He contains his inner psychosis with emotionless pleasantry, whilst narrating his disgust and revulsion of other human beings. Killing homeless people and prostitutes comes easily to Bateman. But can he maintain this mask of sanity? Is anything real in the mind of Patrick Bateman? Or is America itself in a deep psychosis of which Bateman is merely a symptom? A disturbing and enthralling piece of filmmaking from director Mary Harron.
