AMERICAN PSYCHO - the Christian Bale / Mary Harron 2000 Cult Hit
Fri 10:30pm only!
Dir. Mary Harron - 2000 - 103m
Based on Brett Easton Ellis' 1991 controversial book! In New York City in 1987, a handsome, young urban professional, Patrick Bateman (a fittingly creepy Christian Bale), lives a second life as a gruesome serial killer by night. The cast is filled by the detective (Willem Dafoe), the fiance (Reese Witherspoon), the mistress (Samantha Mathis), the coworker (Jared Leto), and the secretary (Chloë Sevigny). This is a biting, wry comedy examining the elements that make a man a monster.
"It needs to be seen and appreciated, like a serpent in a glass cage." - Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"A ferociously intelligent, horribly violent and darkly funny parable of greed and violence." - Wendy IdeTimes (UK)
