But what makes him unique amongst his all too similar peers is a more murderous drive that bubbles just beneath the surface. While his peers might want to try and outdo each other in a best business card competition, Patrick Bateman would rather kill anyone who bests his.
This is a movie about a man losing himself in a world that is too absorbed in itself to really notice just how bad he has fallen. Much of the movie is almost a cry for help, which basically goes unanswered. And even though not all is what it nauseam from his prospective, it almost seems like the world just wants to sweep his actions under the rug, or just outright ignore it than face it.
The book this is based on is rather infamous for its very explicit depictions of killings. The movie, while it does not shy away from explicit content, is much less gratuitous about the evidence it portrays. Which makes for an altogether better film. The gratuity generally has a thematic reason.
And stellar performances all around in this film. Christian Bale pulls off the unhinged and menacing Patrick Bateman amazingly well. The supporting cast all put in their A game as well.
The directing and pacing are some of the best in the genre. Which, hilariously, seems to be labelled as comedy on Amazon. While it's not a totally bleak movie, and does have some dark humor in it, a comedy this is not. It's really a thriller with shades of horror. And some of the scenes in the movie will really sit with you after the film is over.
Overall, if you have the stomach for some violence and terror, I do recommend seeing this. It was one of the best films of 2000, and it's a really affecting story overall. And it's a story told well through its movie medium.
"There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there."
