Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) is a Wall Street yuppie, obsessed with success, status and style, with a stunning fiancée (Reese Witherspoon).

Metacritic

71

The film's details are spot-on, its tone ludicrously ironic, and its casting deft.

Christian Bale is heroic in the way he allows the character to leap joyfully into despicability.

Has the feverish intensity of a bad dream, leavened with a subversive sense of humor that is both sophisticated and cracked.
