    ★★★½

    If you haven't seen the film watch it yourself, but my review doesn't have spoilers either.

    The secondary story/arc if you want to call it that is my only real problem with this film. But it's like 15 minutes and in my opinion tries to make an excellent genre picture with serious themes, more dramatic and up to date and it's unnecessary and imo weakens the film.

    I think just about everything not involved in that other story is flawless,…

    American Psycho

    ★★★½

    I found some of the satire to be entertaining, and the premise as a whole is interesting, but I think at the end of the day it’s just a bit too much. I especially think it starts to get a bit surreal at the end which is bizarre and totally inconsistent. 

    Also I hate when narrating isn’t consistent throughout a film (at least when I notice it) and that’s certainly the case here. 

    It’s very good but I think it tries a little bit too hard to be more than it is.

    Not only do I wish that I could be that cool, but I wish I could watch this movie for the first time again. Jef Costello is an incredible character, something about loners out of time appeals to me, and he certainly fits that bill. Honestly other than that not really sure what about it that I loved so much, I just know that I did love every second of it.


    Jean Pierre-Melville is 2/2 for his films that I've seen, can't wait to see the rest.

    ★★★★

    Basically impossible not to be grinning the entire time I watch this movie. I stand by the foot chase being my favorite chase scene of all time. Also going to double down and say Bigelow is the best action director still making movies. I invite a challenge to that claim with open arms.
