Mary Harron Amerika Syarikat, 2000

smndvdcl's rating of the film American Psycho

A cogent post-modernist critique of the extremism of capitalism. Christian Bale captures the malevolent psyche of Patrick Bateman with insidious glee. Ellis' best novel is Ballardian in scope. Harron's adaptation crystalises the novel's scathing spirit.
