Patrick Bateman, a young, well to do man working on wall street at his fathers company kills for no reason at all, collects body parts and displays them in his home. As his life progresses his hatred for the world becomes more and more intense. Based Bret Ellis graphically violent novel as a 1980s satire. The Bret Easton Ellis novel American Psycho, a dark, violent satire of the "me" culture of Ronald Reagans 1980s, is certainly one of the most controversial books of the 90s, and that notoriety fueled its bestseller status. This smart, savvy adaptation by Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol) may be able to ride the crest of the notoriety; prior to the films release, Harron fought a ratings battle (ironically, for depictions of sex rather than violence), but at the time the director stated, "Were rescuing the from its own bad reputation." Harron and co-screenwriter Guinevere Turner (Go Fish) overcome many of the objections of Elliss novel by keeping the most extreme violence offscreen (sometimes just barely), suggesting the reign of terror of yuppie killer Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) with splashes of blood and personal souvenirs. Bale is razor sharp as the blank corporate drone, a preening tiger in designer suits whose speaking voice is part salesman, part self-help guru, and completely artificial. Carrying himself with the poised confidence of a male model, he spends his days in a numbing world of status-symbol one-upmanship and soul-sapping small talk, but breaks out at night with smirking explosions of homicide, accomplished with the fastidious care of a hopeless obsessive. The films approach to this mayhem is simultaneously shocking and discreet; even Batemans outrageous naked charge with a chainsaw is most notable for the impossibly polished and gleaming instrument of death. Harrons film is a hilarious, cheerfully insidious hall of mirrors all pointed inward, slowly cracking as the portrait becomes increasingly grotesque and insane. -Sean Axmaker
