A rich yuppie businessman is a serialkiller by night.
Patrick Bateman seems the perfect man at first sight: he is handsome, intelligent and earns alot of money. He may be obsessed by his appearance, but to his surroundings he's just a regular guy. At night, however, Patrick likes to kill innocent people in the most horrible ways. Jealousy, hatred, anger, any reason will do for both strangers and friends to be murdered. Police suspect nothing of his massacres untill one detective starts to get suspicious..
Qualities: Bale's depiction of a selfobsessed lunitic is brilliant. Also (without spoiling anything) the ending is very good.
