About this item

Bret Easton Ellis's dark and violent satire of America in the 1980s is brought to the screen in this unsettling drama with black comic overtones. Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), the son of a wealthy Wall Street financier, is pursuing his own lucrative career with his father's firm. Bateman is the prototypical yuppie, obsessed with success, fashion, and style. He is also a serial killer who murders, rapes, and mutilates both strangers and acquaintances without provocation or reason. Donald Kimble (Willem Dafoe), a police detective, questions Bateman about the disappearance of Paul Allen (Jared Leto), whom Patrick murdered several days earlier. As Kimble stays on Bateman's trail, Bateman's mask of studied, distant cool begins to fall apart. American Psycho also features Reese Witherspoon as Bateman's girlfriend, as well as Samantha Mathis, Chloe Sevigny, and Guinevere Turner; the latter also co-authored the screenplay. Controversy followed the production from the start, when speculation that Leonardo Di Caprio would play Bateman sparked concerns that he would lure preteens to an R-rated movie. Di Caprio soon bowed out of the project, and original leading man Bale was reinstated. Later, a group of Toronto residents attempted to block filming in that city after Canadian serial killer Paul Bernardo claimed that Ellis' novel inspired his murder spree. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide.

BEFORE DEXTER...

Customer review by TronSolo

5.0 stars by TronSolo

Easily one of the best black comedies of the last decade. Blends grim, ultra-violence with very vague, witty humor. Think of this as a "thinking man's" Dexter, except WAY before Dexter, and he only kills yuppies instead of criminals. Di Capprio was originally supposed to play Bateman in this film, but backed out after advice from his agent, but I'm glad Bale was able to cause he nailed it in this and it's becoming a cult classic. It did gain some bad publicity after a man said it inspired him to go on his killing spree. Great book though, and great film! Doesn't belong in the $5 bin for sure, but who's complaining??

This is great movie with a couple funny parts. Simple story, Wall Street type guy kills people in unusual ways. I don't want to give the story away as I feel it would take away from the movie, but if youlike/love horror movies this is a good one. Wait for the chainsaw.

I love Christian Bale in this movie. Sure, he's a souless, psychotic killer, but he was still hot the entire time. His acting was superb and I bought his character. In fact, I'm still paying for it...
