American Psycho, in its original inception, was Bret Easton Ellis’ divisive, descriptively grim 1991 novel. The blood-spattered, narcissistic glee of the book’s antihero, Patrick Bateman, created dialogue about materialism, psychology, and carnal fear. Loathed and liked in equal measure, American Psycho became a bedrock for pop culture malaise. When Mary Harron adapted the novel for screen, some nine years later, the Canadian director optimized the satire of Ellis’ opus by lampooning machismo. The subsequent adrenaline shot gave the source material a vehement boost of levity, horror, and pathos. Harron’s polarizing film dissected toxic masculinity through a perceptive and uncompromising lens. With an unnerving performance from Christian Bale –Leonardo DiCaprio was originally attached as the teeth-gnashing investment banker –Mary Harron’s version of American Psycho has become a cultural mainstay, giving way to essays and memes alike.
