Year of release - 2000

Genre - Crime/Drama

Length - 1 hour 42 minutes

Who is in it? - Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman, Justin Theroux as Timothy Bryce, Josh Lucas as Craig McDermott, Bill Sage as David Van Patten and Chloe Sevigny as Jean to name a few.

What's it about? - I really didn't get this film until someone explained it to me then it just clicked. It's a strange film which makes you believe that the main character is a murderer but it's all inside his head. Plenty of blood, sex and craziness.I really did not get the film so can't really explain it much better.

Is it any good? - Christian Bale delivers a grand performance as the psychopath and a great performance by Chloe Sevigny helps it along its way however unless you understand it, it's not very good.

Why should I watch it? - Give it a go but it is crazy.

How do you rate it overall? -5/10
