American Psycho

American Psycho ★★★★★

Spending New Year's with Pat Bateman and the boys from Pierce & Pierce.

One of my personal favourites. Each time I rewatch I feel there's something new I find hilarious. This time around, I caught myself laughing at Bateman's voiceover as he enters Espace. It's the way Christian Bale says "awesome wave" that killed me. The writing from Mary Harron and Guinevere Turner is truly genius and the performance from Bale is just legendary. It's a funny thing, I've seen this film numerous times now and I tried reading the book recently but I just could not get myself to keep going. I guess for me, watching these guys is much more palatable than having them in my head.

"I'm leaving. I've assessed the situation, and I'm going."
