I agree with Travis Bickle, I hope someday a great storm will come and wash the scum off the streets…
Ultimate sigma male movie. And one that on each rewatch, you learn something new
The good: This was a really enjoyable horror movie with well placed jump scares, good pacing, solid acting, and an intriguing plot.
The bad: The ending was a little abrupt and strange, we never found out The Grabber's true intentions for kidnapping children, and the dad was just a stupid character that did not do anything for the plot.
While this is definitely a positive review and a film I enjoyed, I feel like this movie missed on the potential to be great with a few missteps.
In my opinion, this is the closest film to perfection I have ever seen. There is not a single weak spot in this film, the ending scene is one of the most beautiful things I have ever watched. The fact that this lost Best Picture in 2014 is a tragedy.
Two sigmas can be found in this film, Andrew Neiman and Terence Fletcher are both incredible sigma males. Andrew literally says to his girlfriends face that she will get in the way of his success.
You can't have a sigma film summer without this film. The most iconic sigma male in all of film, Patrick Bateman.
I fucking love character study films, and American Psycho takes this to the absolute extreme in a way no other film has done. It is a movie I have watched over 10 times, and likely will continue to watch until I reach the grave.
