Patrick Bateman, a wealthy, young New York City executive gradually descends into his violent and psychotic inner persona, fueled by the cold and soulless society in which he lives in. Based on the novel of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis.
An celebrated portrayal of the duality of the main character, a dark satire of modern society. Notable use of shot composition, lighting and color, garnished with an outstanding performance from Christian Bale in the lead role.
Excellent second feature from Canadian-born, female director Mary Harron. Met with critical acclaim and remembered with a deserved “cult” status. The soundtrack, scored by John Cale, features the likes of Phil Collins, Huey Lewis & The News, The Cure, David Bowie and New Order.
