Shapstik’s Movie Clip of the Week: American Psycho (2000)

“Oh my god…it even has a watermark”

Bale is often undersold for his performance in Mark Harrod’s American Psycho. Dark and violent, some of the content and scenes make a bitter pill to swallow that had not been seen since Natural Born Killers.

But there is also a undercurrent of humour that the viewer can tap into. Batman’s, sorry Bateman’s personality displays such extremes of emotion at such unorthodox moments that you cannot help but laugh. The business card scene is one of my favourites and I love the inner dialogue from Bale as he dissects the pretence of business card etiquette.

This film is fairly underrated and under-watched due to its content. But at the right moments, I actually find it one of the funniest films, and also one of Bale’s best performances.

I hope you enjoyed my Movie Clip, please check out some more in the links!
