Watch American Psycho - Alternative Versions.
Having just finished American Psycho, I came to IMDB to get some
clarification on the ending. And it seems I'm not the only one left
adrift by the ambiguous ending.
I've browsed some of your comments, not all 400+ to be sure. But some of
them. A good sampling I think, and this movie has three distinct cheering
Those who consider it a masterpiece, those who consider it unredeemable,
boring trash, and by far the largest segment, those who see it as a flawed
I fall into the latter category. And no, I did not read the book. But as
others have stated any movie that requires you to read the book, to "get"
the movie, is ultimately a failure as a movie.
So my review is based solely on the merits of the film. And contrary to
some have said, the film does have many merits. I found it brilliantly
directed, and a superbly acted examination of excess, and boredom, and
An examination, satire, critique of a time, and type of thinking.
Even before seeing the ending, I thought how much bateman lives in people.
Found myself thinking, an examination of bateman is an examination of men
the name of Reagan and Bush. How American Psycho is an examination of our
times, and our modern theologies.
I found the movie as a whole riveting, loved the restraint shown (and
disagree with those calling for more gore, I think Mary should be
for her deft hand, the scenes have more power for what is not shown), and
was captivated by nearly every scene, by scenes others have called boring,
but I found profound.
Bateman putting on his makeup, or simply trying to get a restaurant, and
near apocalyptic importance, such minutiae makes in the lives of empty
The right card, or the right cloth, or the right table, or the right
how these are the signposts of an empty age and an empty soul, and how
things have more value than your fellow man... or woman.
Bateman attains everything the materialistic times tells him he should
but once he gets it he feels nothing. Emptier than before, less than
It's only in the extremes of his addictions he begins to feel something,
anything. He feeds to fill the emptiness, but the more he feeds the
he gets. He eats at his fellowman (woman) but in his bloodlust he eats at
He is the American dream, taken to its cannibalistic extremes.
And never before has makeup, played such a mesmerizing part in a movie.
Bateman's(Chris Bale's) face at times when he is under stress, takes on a
plastic look, a glossy, sweaty sheen, and for all the world it looks like
he's wearing a mask... and the mask, his mask of sanity, is beginning to
Simply amazing use of makeup. And incredible performance by the lead
I wasn't familiar with him before this, but everyone will be after
Upon first hearing about this movie, I had no desire to see it. I've grown
up since the age of Hills Have Eyes and trash like The Beyond, watching
people suffer no longer seems significant. I guess as we get older we ask
more of our art than springer, or the WWF, or slasher flicks. We ask of
art to tell us something true. Something of ourselves, and our
I think American Psycho under the deft hand of Mary Harron becomes more
my prejudices, and exceeds my expectations. Rises at times to dizzying
heights not unlike art.
Mary's restraint makes this movie. But I fear her restraint nearly sinks
as well. The ending is too ambiguous. Who is Bateman in the end. Is there
Bateman? And what did he do or did not do?
In the end,the movie will nag at you. Did he or didn't he? And in the end,
now that I write this I'm thinking maybe the answer doesn't really matter,
maybe in the end the answer is the same. In the end a sin of thought, or a
sin of action, is still a sin. In the end we are left with a man, and a
nation... whose mask is slipping.
I think like the first Psycho, time will prove this one.... worthy. I now
add Mary Harron to the small selection of modern directors I will tiptoe
through broken glass to see. Directors like Dave Fincher(Seven, Fight
Carl Franklin(Devil in a Blue Dress), Johnny To(Expect the Unexpected),
Ringo Lam(Full Alert, Victim), M. Night Shyamalan(Sixth Sense,
and Peter Weir(Fearless).
