    Straight from the opening scene, its pretentiousness is somehow adorable. Bale’s best performance, and arguably made his career. So many quotable lines. This is NOT a horror movie, as it’s categorized. It’s a dark comedy, and maybe one of the best dark comedies ever made. Top 15 movies all-time. The book, however, is a different animal. Not altogether terrible, but a much different tone. I would argue its subtle message (gross elitism, materialism, entitlement) is as valid today as ever. But it’s not preachy or even necessarily intending to really make that point. The ambiguity at the end could be the only real critique I might have, but I’m not sure having any solid closure would have made it any better. It’s pretty flawless, top to bottom.

    Ohhh somewhere below 8mm. But below Silence of The Sheep. Yet the problem with it has been that all psychotics aren’t homeless bums. Majority are respected, dignified, family members and drunk with the power that others give them via awards and praise. John Wayne Gacy. Nuff said.
  • Gotta return the videotapes!

    American Psycho is the perfect swtich from the 1989 classic Vampire's Kiss which starred Nicolas Cage. American Psycho takes the goolish take from Vampire's Kiss and makes into a stylish crazy loothed genre that follows obessed killer Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) who is a wall street captain and slowy descents into madness and starts to kill innocent woman and also Paul Allen (Jared Leto) his best friend. Christian Bale's performence is creepy and striking but everytime he descents into madness it's hailrious in a good way. Vampire's Kiss is still a crazy wild ride but American Psycho remains a classic and without a doubt Christian Bale even before he became the Cape Crusader he is still wonderful and creepy at the same time.

    Bloody and disturbing but also darkly hilarious. Bale is impressive and completely committed to the role. It is a trip through the eyes of a disturbed person but also a satire of obsession with status, materialism and the superficial. But it’s not for everyone and while well made the only actually entertaining moments are derived solely from Bale’s more animated and absurdly bizarre moments.

    Stay away if you do t have a sick sense of humor. This movie is straight up no holds barred, balls out retarded in a great way. So fasten your seatbelts and put on your strap ons for a hilarious, 80’s themed, comedy, nightmare of a movie. Loved it

    This movie is Dark, Funny, and Hazy. Plot and script is well thought out including acting as well. Recommend buying it especially since it’s 4K
