Morality, goodness and the people are expendable. Greed, artifice and accessories are everything. Shocking, culturally impacting and hits very close to home, Mary Harron’s ‘American Psycho’ is a horrific comedy of manners that never flinches from taking off the glove and slapping pretentious, alpha dog driven and ‘me-me-me’ yuppie culture square across the face with a wink, a smile and a buzzing chainsaw. 65 more words
I don’t think there are many movie-buffs who’d disagree that American Psycho (2000) is far superior to its cash-in sequel… in part because the latter was a generic “killing to get ahead” story of ruthless ambition, while the former is a biting satire of a very specific breed of vapid, vainglorious, and sociopathic Suit, who kills out of petty jealousy and primal bloodlust, rather than to achieve any long-term professional ambitions. 201 more words
