Bret Easton Ellis's dark and violent satire of America in the 1980s is brought to the screen in this unsettling drama with black comic overtones. Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), the son of a wealthy Wall Street financier, is pursuing his own lucrative career with his father's firm. Bateman is the prototypical yuppie, obsessed with success, fashion, and style. He is also a serial killer who murders, rapes, and mutilates both strangers and acquaintances without provocation or reason. Donald Kimble (Willem Dafoe), a police detective, questions Bateman about the disappearance of Paul Allen (Jared Leto), whom Patrick murdered several days earlier. As Kimble stays on Bateman's trail, Bateman's mask of studied, distant cool begins to fall apart. American Psycho also features Reese Witherspoon as Bateman's girlfriend, as well as Samantha Mathis, Chloe Sevigny, and Guinevere Turner; the latter also co-authored the screenplay. Controversy followed the production from the start, when speculation that Leonardo Di Caprio would play Bateman sparked concerns that he would lure preteens to an R-rated movie. Di Caprio soon bowed out of the project, and original leading man Bale was reinstated. Later, a group of Toronto residents attempted to block filming in that city after Canadian serial killer Paul Bernardo claimed that Ellis' novel inspired his murder spree. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Feed me a stray cat

Ha ha, yeah that part where he's flexing in the mirror and pointing.

awesome film and a very good price for a DVD but I think I'll wait and keep an eye out for it on offer in Blu-Ray.

"Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual."

Tesco have some great DVD deals at the mo. Last night i saw a triple of Aliens, Predator and Aliens vs Predator for £3 :w00t:

I got Raging Bull for £2, Platoon for £2 and a triple of The Sentinel, Man on Fire and The Siege for £3.

And I'm pretty sure I'm not going to get away with it this time.But you can't deny that the movie adaption is a perfect representation of it. I personally preferred the movie as the book tends to have quite a lot of repetition, especially with the nightclubs/restaurants, and comments on clothing, etc. There are some great moments in the novel that aren't in the film though - like that guy and his dog walking through the park, and what he does with the rat...Bret Easton Ellis has a very disturbed mind to write that!



the film was not violent enough or graphic enough for me!!! the rat and the coat hanger scenes for eg :w00t:

give his other books a read - less than zero and rules of attraction (if u haven't already) :thumbsup:
