American Psycho

14 Apr, 2000

Bale plays Patrick Bateman in the cult psychological thriller American Psycho, based on the book by Bret Easton-Ellis. Bateman is a wealthy New York investor who tries to hide his alternate psychopathic ego from his friends as he begins to be taken over by his fantasies. In a later interview he says:

I never viewed Patrick Bateman as a real character. It wasn’t going to work unless I made myself look absurd.
