American Psycho (2000)

Patrick Bateman is a wealthy twenty-seven year old man working as a broker on Wall Street. He dresses nice, he has a rigorous exercise routine, and lives in a expensive and modern suite in an upscale apartment of the city. He looks normal from the outside, but inside he struggles with an unquenchable blood lust and lack of sympathy for fellow human beings. So at night he puts on gloves and a raincoat so as not to stain his clothes, takes a spotless axe and hacks his co-worker to pieces. No one suspects him of anything, even his lawyer who thinks he’s joking when he confesses all the people he’s murdered. A bloody good dark comedy; Bale is flawless in the role as the clean cut, eccentric music lover Patrick Bateman. Starring Christian Bale, Justin Theroux, Josh Lucas, Bill Sage, Chloe Sevigny, Reese Witherspoon, Samantha Mathis, Matt Ross, Jared Leto, Willem Dafoe 8/10
