Plot – Spoilers:
Patrick Bateman is an investment banker into ‘mergers and acquisitions’ or ‘murders and executions’ as he likes to call it. He has fantasies of killing people, mostly women, which he sometimes appears to act on.

The trigger for a killing could be a stray comment, an attitude to life he doesn’t approve of, or simply envy. We follow Bateman through his empty life where colleagues don’t even care to remember each other’s names – a vacuum Bateman attempts to fill through his murders and narcissistic indulgences. He also is most likely closeted gay and loves to expound on the intricacies of ’80s pop music – sadly for him, the only people he feels confident enough to do so with, are potential victims or hookers. Bateman is pleading to be punished and redeemed in a world that couldn’t be bothered enough to even chastise him.

Favorite Scene:
The Huey Lewis scene with the axe features a hilarious performance from Christian Bale apart from the ‘check em’ moment.

    I didn’t understand if he did the murders or just thought all or most of this up?

      I think it’s supposed to stay ambiguous. It’s not explained in the book either.

      He did really murder them. Brett Easton Ellis’s writing style is very surreal and satirical. Things are intentionally unrealistic.

    Read the book, you had to be over 18 to buy it because of the graphic content. This movie was a bit tame compared to the book but I loved it. Well acted, funny in parts and just goes to prove you dont need a shitload of blood and guts to make a great film. Thanks to EUM for posting this, you guys are awesome.

    Closeted gay? Where the hell did that come from?! Especially after marathon fuck session with the two hookers and then how he feverishly washed his gloved hands after touching the closeted Luis Cruthers…. obviously in disgust.

    Still, this is one of my all-time favorite movies… and a fantastic breakout roles for Christian Bale, one of the finest actors in Hollywood. And if you doubt what I’m saying you probably smell like cabbage and should watch The Machinist ASAP.

      He talks about clothes and fashion all the time. Obvious, when you think about it.

    not only is this a great slasher, the ending adds a great doubtful eeriness that really shook me. i love that! this film is, of course, a classic. (christian bale is also very sexy in this movie, even if he is a serial killer.)

    basically: dubs guy goes on murdering spree… or does he?

    I like this movie and story because its such an interesting social commentary on economics, the professional world, and Western society, you have to (should be) be really educated to enjoy this movie. Just like what the book says, I have no doubts there’s real people out there something like this – therefore its actually wise to be prepared and understand perspectives of the most brutal dog eat dog jackals of Western Society.

    It certainly has disturbing moments, and I don’t approve of needless or excessive amounts of violence and gore, but that’s not essential to the whole narrative and plot. That was cruel shit stabbing the bum because Patrick’s co-worker forgot his name, lol, I can’t watch it, but I get it, the whole movie is this social commentary on these like outrageous, completely off the wall, “psychotic”, transgressive schemes. They perfectly captured that sentiment of wall street tough guys, that idea of these expert types that can randomly cite off some incredibly obscure knowledge – the music monologues were hilarious.

      You are obviously wanting a reply with your comments, so here goes: that is a really strange obsession you have so you have 3 choices. 1. Go lick some public toilet bowls. 2. Go see a psychiatrist. 3. Look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself, why would I put this out there for everyone to see?
