Based on the controversial novel by Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho is a darkly comic, violent portrait of Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), a Wall street player, status whore and murderer in New York City 1987.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
A wry film about mental illness. A smart, studied, perverse movie exploring what we care about, what we want to care about, and what we want others to think we care about. Pokes at the dysfunction central to many relationships; and is uncomfortably funny doing it. Very funny.
I felt cheated at the end.
Why cause all this distress and then call it meaningless?
Ok, its not an artistic remark, not even a critic. It's just the taste in your mouth at the end of not so pleasant date. xD
