yeah i own this movie. a cousin of mine watched it with me when it came out. i remember seeing the tv show for the oscar awards where they where awarding best lead role and it was between Leonardo Decaprio for Titanic and Christian Bale for American Psycho, and of course Leonerdo won.
its interesting to know that originally the lead role for American Psycho was up in the air between Christian and Leonerdo with them settling on Leonerdo, but then Christan Bale won the role back somehow. Then the oscar for best lead role ends up being between Titanic and American Psycho, with the shitty move Titanic taking it.
but Christians acting in this movie was fucking brilliant! When i was in high school i watched this movie and alot of my poetry and overall personallity was influenced in a big way by Patrick Bateman. the movie definitly rings true.... on the exterior we may be cool, cold and expressionless but on the inside, we can be completely out of control. Thats saying something important about how we may feel about our places in life if you think about it.
