American Psycho

By day he is no different from others in the crowd you do not pay attention to him. But at night, this well-mannered citizen becomes sophisticated killer terrorizes the sleeping city. Modern savages, despising the laws of humanity, eats only a withering fire of his hatred, which is growing with each new offense. Avalanche horror approaching a critical point. Soon the time will come when it will be impossible to stop.

This film from all viewed me is the most reliably showing the feelings of man, which is the frenzy of the small details of life, standards companies not carry itself nothing special. Psychosis, it causes the feelings of the person in this torque is shown and designed to detail.

Description of life of this stratum of society, in which the main character, on my opinion, worked very efficiently. It doesn't take too long, but it also shows all the absurdity of many moments of the lives of the people of this level. Of course, it is probably more merits of books than the movie itself, but to show on the screen correctly — the same task is not easy.

For me, this film reveals the true talent of bale. Not matter what it turns out to play him in mostly people with extremely unstable mentality, he makes it just fine. What is the only scene with rain cover! "You like Huey Lewis and the News?"

And, of course, it is worth noting musical accompaniment of the film. Music selected this film perfectly underlines the satirical direction in the picture. In same time, music performs a big role in creating the image of a psychopath, and also helps to emphasize.
In General, the film turned out great and I everything seems to what I wanted to convey and Director writer to the viewer has been completely transmitted and a large part due to the acting of Christian bale.

The film is very very rarely not to and least level with the book. Rarely women Directors shoot anything decent. "American psycho" — sort of a double rarity.

Christian bale — one of the most talented actors of our time. And of its 35 films are almost in 20 (!) he played more than adequately. But  American psycho — top of acting. Patrick Bateman — gorgeous, beautiful in its brutality and in his madness. The episode before the murder in  the"raincoat" and with a moon-walk with an ax in the hands of just enchanting!

In preparation for the role bale tried a bunch of drugs like and the hero of the book, and some times threatened to abandon the participation in the set, if Mary Harron not will bring the adaptation to work. So that the movie is so great — this double merit Chris. But William Dafoe, Jared Leto, Reese Witherspoon, George Lucas managed not less excellent.

Many do Thriller, where the daughter of his hate and which at the same time sympathize with you could call on the discount? Perhaps only the silence of the lambs (Dexter does not count, because the series is + to hate him not that). So what this should be who killing other people without any remorse, and on the contrary, with great pleasure, gave him unknown sense of euphoria that if the viewer could feel him the disgust, and even his love. He must be intelligent, charismatic, and it must be something special (and I now is not about the methods of killing). This is Hannibal Lecter? Of course, but is Patrick Bateman?

And actually, who is this Patrick Bateman? This young, rich, successful businessman, who all went from parents. Whose work is that would pick up the suit more solid, like massage, to impress the admission to wipe his pants in his office. On first glance it usual, spoiled by the money man who spends it not exchanged nor what. Patrick Bateman is handsome, perfectly formed, from him gentle and beautiful skin, great taste in music, he clever, almost perfect, but someone might is the ideal. But under the mask of superiority, of beauty and idealism is hiding something bigger and scary than a normal person. Bateman is the killer, not even just a killer, he is a real maniac, which I don't care for something to kill. Whether jealousy, rage banal or complete lack of reason. He likes to kill, he like a drug addict, hooked on the murder and the longer the film goes, the do you know that his rage comes from and is closer to the finale of it turns into the frenzy, and when it starts shooting at passers-by, policeman, cleaner and entertainer. He crazy machine for murder released from under control.

What is eating Patrick Bateman, which he can lure you in my apartment and to chop with an axe, talking about their favorite songs? The starting point for it is envy, whether it apartment views Central Park or card ideal material and Bateman begins to go with mind of hatred, from it begins with a headache, it shaking feel like it directly amidst the bustling of the place will stab you in the throat plug and then be happy to dance around your bleeding corpse. Someone can seem the whole film is just an incredibly brutal and cynical scenes and part will be right. Remember only chase naked with a chainsaw, this a scene made on me big impression. But the film makes fun of our common Vice. And I think you already guessed that I'm on envy. All when we are jealous, whether or nothing that really worthwhile. To yet the book I have not read, but going to soon it correct.

The entire movie is fully rests on the Christian Baile. Of course, there there are many other great actors, Reese Witherspoon, Jared Leto, Willem Dafoe... But them in viewing is generally not noticed. Bale literally joined in his role, he he became a Bateman and it is in every emotion, in every movement. Have Bale many great roles, but this is really the best, so would play Bateman not could anybody. And I really like DiCaprio as actor is clearly not the role, well, that he refused.

The final film nobody indifferent. Who will be indignant, who is that sigh of relief, but I said, indifferent not will be no. American psycho film about that we only envious creatures who are motivated by a desire to Excel on others. And remember each we got something from Patrick Bateman.
