American Psycho (2000)
Director: Mary Harron
Main Stars: Christian Bale, Justin Theroux, Josh Lucas, Chloe Sevigny, Reese Witherspoon
Storyline: A wealthy New York banking executive becomes a secret psycho and outlives his demented fantasies.
Review (Spoils): Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) is one sick mf. He has it all the looks, the fame, the money and he is a naughty boy who has a freaky temper and fetish. He becomes more and more aggressive and paranoid as the he goes deeper into this sick fantasy. He becomes greedy for money, evil and the selfishness of his own needs. Patrick Bateman is the perfect villain he is a pretty boy but at the same time every woman’s nightmare for his sick perverse ways. The film goes right from the book including the bloody gore and the seriousness of the film. We have swinging axes, plastic sheets, stabbings and some freaky sex. Christian Bale steals the show on this film as he played the character perfectly and he is plays the playboy to a tee. “You’re a fucking ugly bitch. I want to stab you to death, then play around with your blood.” is just some of the tastes of this evil villain.
Rating: Mary Harron thank you for creating such an entertaining film without getting banned. This is very border line for a Hollywood type horror film and some of the pieces remind me of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. Lots of blood, sicko humour and 80s tunes what is there not to love!
