American Psycho

American Psycho ★★★★


I love it when psychopaths self analyse themselves and sweat a lot. I love it more when they do it wearing Valentino.

This was good, but I think it took some time to get there. I'm guessing the hollow feel of it was on purpose but it was a while before you're fully engulfed by Bateman's world because of how different it is. Tonally the film follows his mind set and that's pretty extraordinary. Half way through you start to feel it and assess the situations on screen as Patrick would.

The end monologue is also fantastic.
