AMERICAN PSYCHO gives us a monster for the late 20th century. Showing contemporary urban life through the eyes of a serial killer -- forcing one to enter his mind and understand his motives.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - Filled with sex, violence, and pitch-black humor, this adaptation of the controversial novel is not for the easily offended. Young adults are most likely to get its warped vibe, as will less sensitive older viewers. The film is wholly inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading
Very Good
American Psycho, an adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' controversial novel of sex and serial murder in the image-obsessed '80s, would be absolutely unthinkable without Christian Bale, who is a stunning revelation as the social status-minded sociopath. It is also difficult to imagine the film being as wickedly satirical--while genuinely disturbing--as it is had it not been made by director/co-scripter Mary Harron. Given how unsettling the film's ultimate effect is, it almost seems inappropriate to call American Psycho "enjoyable," but most of this wild and perverse trip can easily be classified as being so.
