Description

The suit gives off an impression that he’s a businessman, and the well themed colours tell us of his style. Feminist activist Gloria Steinem was among those opposed to Ellis's book because of its portrayal of violence toward women. The book has garnered notoriety for its graphic violence and has led to it being censored in multiple countries. The story follows the descent into total insanity of the main character and narrator, Patrick Bateman, an elite, narcissistic investment banker in Manhattan.

He’s not one to hold back and many have referred to him as a pariah and one of the US’ finest cultural critics for some of his views on the American psyche. Although mostly cut in the film (briefly shown in a few scenes from the movie), Bateman has contradictory views from what he attempts to portray to others, like racism and especially sexism. A literal, exhaustively faithful adaptation of American Psycho would run six hours, be banned in every country, and be unwatchable, but these filmmakers did a spectacular job alchemizing literary dross into cinematic gold. is also a description of today's world, then bad writing becomes an ingenious mimesis of a bad world.In 2023, Sumerian Comics published a sequel comic adaptation that includes new narratives surrounding Bateman's murders. Bateman treats the people around him just like any other consumer product, because of the void he still battles with and wishes to fulfill from within, hence, having dual personas, having the dull artificial identity, compared to his free limitless persona of his mind. The drawing of Patrick Bateman in this cover takes away his eyes, which shows his lack of conscience. On the other hand, is the inner self of Patrick Bateman, the aboriginal-self, who copes and relinquishes his outer complications and "fake" identity, created by consumerism, through violence on other human beings, who he finds consumable, and expresses absolute control of his desires and true self through his violent fantasies.

This approach focuses on the general image we have on Patrick Bateman (the main character in American Pyscho). At a restaurant on Beverly Boulevard, this woman explodes “into a spastic rage” and accuses Ellis of “white male privilege” when he casually suggests that Black Lives Matter has a PR problem. Unreliable narration in Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho: Interaction between narrative form and thematic content". He lives in a chic apartment on the Upper West Side, where he likes to listen to music and watch movies.The real estate agent, who sees his surgical mask, fools him into stating he was attending the apartment viewing because he "saw an ad in the Times" (when in fact there was no such advertisement).
