Critic Reviews of "American Psycho"Lisa Alspector Chicago ReaderMarch 28, 2011
The slick satire cleverly equates materialism, narcissism, misogyny, and classism with homicide, but you may laugh so loud at the protagonist that you won't be able to hear yourself laughing with him.Desson Thomson Washington PostMarch 28, 2011
It's hard to summon up enthusiasm for a performance so rooted in bloody banality. I mean, as Patrick, Bale's most emotionally pressing dilemma is: Chainsaw or butcher knife?David Edelstein SlateMarch 28, 2011
American Psycho is nearly perfect for what it is, but before we go on, we should ask what that actually amounts to. Can something with so rigid a thesis be a real work of art?Richard Corliss TIME MagazineMarch 28, 2011
It needs to be seen and appreciated, like a serpent in a glass cage.Dennis Harvey VarietyMay 30, 2008
Harron's Psycho reps an impressive reclaiming of dubious material.David Ansen NewsweekMarch 31, 2008
Conceptually, this savage cartoon ends up as trapped in surfaces as its shallow antihero: it's all dressed up with nowhere to go.Jeffrey M. Anderson Common Sense MediaApril 29, 2014
A bloody, gruesome black comedy that's not for kids.Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.ComNovember 20, 2010
The movie is elegantly shot, but based on what's on screen, it's hard to tell what motivated Mary Harron to direct this emotionally vapid featureNick Rogers Suite101.comSeptember 25, 2010
Mary Harron asks what's more unnerving - exaggerated, imagined violence or vacuous realities some wish to be real, psychosis as much in the construct as the character. Thus, "Psycho's" savagery goes beyond a simple screed against 1980s excess and greed.John A. Nesbit Old School ReviewsSeptember 11, 2010
much like the 80's era that it personifiesJim Lane Sacramento News & ReviewAugust 07, 2008
Harron' s incisive eye and Bale' s bravura performance carry the day.
