It’s episode 98! Corrina and Sarah from Picturehouse Podcast return for Corrina’s choice, the 2000 Christian Bale film American Psycho.

American Psycho is a 2000 film by Mary Hannon based on the 1991 novel by Bret Easton Ellis starring Christian Bale, Reece Witherspoon, Jared Leto, Willem Dafoe and Chloë Sevigny - if that doesn’t get you excited then go home now.

Misunderstood on its release, loosely thrown into the horror pile for its strangely minimal violence onscreen (most is implied and it doesn’t even come close to the book) despite being a darkly hilarious journey into white privilege, toxic masculinity and rampant consumerism.

Despite Ellis himself saying he didn’t think the film was necessary it feels more necessary in today’s ever more unbelievable society and feels every bit as uncomfortable. If anything it deserves a revisit just for Christian Bale’s performance. Before he focused on physical transformations, Batman and winning Oscars he very nearly killed his career with this hilarious and disturbing performance (apparently inspired by Tom Cruise - the person not one of his characters), the studios wanted Leo di Caprio and what a different film that would have been.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=101]
Unsurprisingly American Psycho scored very generously across all categories and guests and scores a very high 4.37 overall.
