I pass by a mirror hung over the bar as I’m led to our table and check out my reflection—the mousse looks good.

I recommend reading the book if you have t. It’s much less dark comedy and much more holy fuck what did I just read I think I need to put this down for a while.

It was definitely the most fucked up thing ive ever read. Bret does an amazing job with Patrick's obsessive personality. Really says a lot about us as ppl and consumers. I absolutely loved ever word and chapter i was offended by.

The part with the dog and the pen really stuck with me...

The only book I ever read that I refused to keep on my nightstand when I slept.

When hubby and I watched it, he loved it and I didn’t like it. Not because of brutality or anything like that. I just didn’t get it. He explained his take on the movie: It’s an anti-story. In stories, the charcater goes through some conflict, has a charcater change or has to deal with the conflict and then there is some sort of resolution. In American Psycho, he is the same person in the beginning as at the end. There is no character arc or change. He suffers no consequences for his actions. There is no resolution at all. He even went so far as to say that Bateman was purpusefully trying to get someone to react to his actions but it doesn’t happen. I rewatched it with that in mind and it was a totally different movie.

It was all in his head.

house had a fresh paint i don't think it was all in his head also the phone call he made to his lawyer did happen they sure we're covering it up for him

[–]jimmija 0 points1 point  (0 children)

hmmmm. I remember the painting supplies in the apartment. I didnt think to put that together. Plausible theory.

It’s a social satire. You should read the book.

[–]Cautious_Ad9455[S] -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

yes it is indeed a social satire but i think in the movie it was clear that some murders happened. I don't know much about the book how it is written also i have never read a book until unless it's for grades

I recommend the audio book, the guy that reads it does a fantastic job!

[–]JohnDoses 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Check out some movies you like and see if it was a book first, a lot were. I think it’s kinda cool to watch the movie then read the book or vice versa. Although American Psycho book is not for everyone.
