| Christian Bale the new Peter Cushing
Now it all makes sense. Christian Bale was born to play horror characters. I couldn't understand why I was so , so, afraid of him even in films like "Velvet Goldmine" He is a poster boy for putrid souls in elegant wrapping. In "American Psycho" - a film that deserves much more attention than it's got - he is absolutely terrific. Totally believable. I could sense his delight in playing a monster of this kind. Interestingly enough this manicured monster seems to be asking for sympathy, imagine the nerve! But Christian Bale succeeds in showing us a face we (I) hadn't quite seen before and yet we (I) accept without question. He should have gotten an Oscar nomination but, fortunately, he didn't.

Goofs

(at around 50 mins) When being questioned by Detective Kimball, Patrick states on the night of Paul Allen's murder, he was at dinner with a woman named "Veronica". Later (at around 1h 6 mins), however, when he and Kimball are at lunch, he says he must have had dinner with "Victoria" the following night. He changed the name of the woman. While it is possible Patrick got mixed up, it is unlikely a man of his organization would do such a thing when faced in such a situation.


Alternate Versions

In the television edit, there are these changes:

  • Though the hooker scene is kept in, the threesome sex scene part is cut off, and after starting "Sussudio" it cuts to them with the light off. When Christian Bale gets up, his butt is not shown.
  • Christian Bale's butt is also removed from "Morning Routine" scene
  • Curses and some innuendo ("he won't give the maitre'd head") are cut. The line "I want you to clean your vagina" is kept however.
