American Psycho

American Psycho ★★★★★

This was one of those movies in which the first thought that comes to mind once I finish viewing the movie is, "Why have I never watched this before?" This movie was epic from start to finish. Everything from the cinematography, the script, the musical score, and the development of the plot was perfect. The film had a huge effect on me. It was very hypnotic at times. I had my eyes glued to the screen the whole time. The movie was perfectly unpredictable. Christian Bale was spectacular. His performance was utterly disturbing, yet hauntingly ingenious. This form of method acting was very effective and gives the film that much more reason for applaud. Bale really studied the character of Patrick Bateman for this role. He absolutely deserved that ACCA award for best actor. This movie also contained just the right amount of gore and blood. It's not over the top, it's real. Obviously, the soundtrack is fun and effective along with the orchestral score by John Cale. American Psycho is an impeccable movie. Perfectly executed in my opinion, and full of very memorable moments.
