American Psycho

American Psycho ★★★★

I had no idea what to expect from American. I haven't even read the book to prepare myself for it. I'd always lumped this in the same category as Fight Club, but I definitely prefer this movie. The dark, cynical sense of humor of this satire is excellent. I can't think of anyone else who could have played the part of Patrick Bateman aside from Christian Bale. For some reason I didn't quite realize that Jared Leto and Willem Dafoe were in this until I saw them. I don't know why that was such a surprise to me...
