Directed by Mary Harron
, released in 2000, based on Bret Ellis's novel of the same name
. Stars Christian Bale as the cool, quick witted Patrick Batemen
, who is either transhuman or hallucinating, based on your interpretation. The movie is very well written and quotable, shifting from black comedy to horror to surreal drug trip and back again. Stylistically, it reminded me of Naked Lunch, though it's much more violent. I'm really stoked for The Dark Knight
now, which also stars Bale in a lead role. I bought the book, too, and cannot wait to start reading it.
