American Psycho

American Psycho ★★★★½

“There is a moment of sheer panic when I realize that Paul's apartment overlooks the park... and is obviously more expensive than mine.”

A hysterical social satire of the vanity of everything, especially in the business world. You can kill and be misogynistic, but everyone will just ask, “do you have a dinner reservation for tonight?”

Christian Bale is absolutely unhinged in this movie, which is what the role asks for. Dialogue is hilarious, but some of the sequences are so cringeworthy. Thankful that women are largely behind this production. The threesome sex scene with Bateman checking himself out in the mirror is one of the funniest scenes of the movie. 

Let’s ask Paul Allen where he’s having dinner tonight.
