“The slick satire cleverly equates materialism, narcissism, misogyny, and classism with homicide, but you may laugh so loud at the protagonist that you won’t be able to hear yourself laughing with him.” – Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
“It needs to be seen and appreciated, like a serpent in a glass cage.” – David Edelstein, Slate
In New York City in 1987, a handsome, young urban professional, Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), lives a second life as a gruesome serial killer by night. The cast is filled by the detective (Willem Dafoe), the fiance (Reese Witherspoon), the mistress (Samantha Mathis), the coworker (Jared Leto), and the secretary (Chloë Sevigny). This is a biting, wry comedy examining the elements that make a man a monster.
Dir. Mary Harron. 101 min. 2000.
