Mary Harron's controversial 2000 film is just as hilarious as it was in theatres nearly 4 years later.

Christian Bale's tour de force performance successfully captures the world of the book and demonstrates how stressful the need to fit into society can be.

Cleverly written and wonderfully acted, the film is darkly comical with all manner of memorable quotes, my favourite occurs when Patrick Bateman is 'having drinks' in a nightclub with a dumb blonde. 'What are you into?' she asks, to which he replies 'Murders and executions'. She then responds by asking 'Do you like it? Most of the people I know in mergers and acquisitions hate it'.

The dialogue is excellently written and the actors play it so perfectly that it is as if they were born to play their respective roles.

The violent scenes are quite wince inducing, but are in no way as graphic as the novel's depictions.

My biggest problem with the film first time around was the ambiguous ending, however having since read the novel and watching it again, the ending worked really well.

A perfect portrait of a young man's decent into madness.

Don't fall behind, make sure you get help
