Novel by Brett Easton Ellis:
I love this movie!!! I couldnt help but start out by saying that, everything about this movie is perfect. ‘American Psycho’ is easily one of the best films I’ve seen in almost a decade.
Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) plays a high business exec. who makes boat loads of money but lives in a fantasy world. His visions of reality are blurred with his own visions of pain and suffering. Whats real and whats not real? What makes Bateman tick? ‘Psycho’ is a serial killer movie that is so real it gives you chills.
Bale puts on one of the best performances I have ever seen, I cannot believe he wasn’t nominated for an Academy Award! This is one of the biggest snubbs since Johnny Depp’s performance in ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Veas.’ Bale makes this movie work- he is the movie- without him, there’s nothing. Bale’s cute wit, mixed with is psychodic habits and his dark and twisted evil side make him a big winner as an actor. From start to finish you are captivated in his performance.
To make this short and sweet ‘American Psycho’ is great story filled with fabulous diologue, superb acting, disturbing scenerios and it’s also great fun!!! See this movie at all costs.
