Mary Harron Amerika Syarikat, 2000

Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film American Psycho

Harron's brilliant adaptation of Ellis's novel succeeds, not just in its parody of 80s corporate culture, but in presenting a world defined entirely by the subjective viewpoint of its lead protagonist. The events depicted are not horror, but the tragic fantasy of a man who sees life refracted through an empty prism of consumer brands, beauty regimes, tacky pop music, violent exploitation, action movies & pornography.
