American Psycho

   psychosmall
Controversial and deeply misunderstood, Mary Harron’s big-screen adaption of Bret Easton Ellis’ satire of 1980s fetishism, avarice and olympic-level narcissism is unapologetically brutal and laugh-out-loud funny (often at the same time). Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) is the ultimate ‘winner’, drowning in all the money and possessions Wall Street can provide. He is also, unfortunately, a psychopath. As the bodies pile up around him, Patrick’s cool charm and the dazzle of his success blind all (including girlfriend Evelyn – Reese Witherspoon) except a bemused and dogged detective (Willem Dafoe). This is a desperate and dark comedy, a triumph of social critique and dysfunctional, bloody slapstick – unless of course you are a Phil Collins or Huey Lewis and the News fan – in which case, it is just plain offensive. 131mins, rated R
