6. American Psycho (2000)
I always had mixed feelings about American Psycho, but the older I got and the more times I saw it — I started to really appreciate this movie more. Christian Bale, Reese Witherspoon, Jared Leto, Willem Dafoe, Chloe Sevigny, and other well-known actors today are among the cast members.
The film follows a wealthy New York City investment banking executive, Patrick Bateman and his psychopathic alter ego. He’s rich, has a great job on Wall Street, but has a dark side that includes a desire for violence and insane fantasies.It’s dark, yet a bit humorous at times and delves into the mind of someone who has a predatory mindset.
While this is a work of fiction, American Psycho offers an intriguing glimpse on the surreal world inhabited by finance’s elite class, and the utter disconnect they have among themselves and with reality.
