Mary Harron’s adaptation of Brett Easton Ellis’ controversial novel toned down the brutality and increased the satire. But make no mistake, Patrick Bateman is still a genuine monster. In a role he was born to play, Christian Bale is terrifying as Bateman, a trader on Wall Street at the height of the excessive 80s, whose outlet for the frustration of his daily grind is to commit random acts of cruelty and murder. A film that relishes in surface lifestyles, Mary Harron’s dark, dark comedy benefits from jettisoning the sadism that made Ellis’ book so reviled, but retains the author’s sardonic voice, even magnifying it through the film’s visual style and the superb ensemble around Bale, which includes Reese Witherspoon, Jared Leto, Chloë Sevigny and Willem Dafoe.
