Like the Bret Easton Ellis book that it’s based on, the ending of Mary Harron’s American Psycho is rather ambiguous, and has been a source of debate amongst fans for a long time. The narrative takes some rather sharp turns as it builds up to its conclusion, and in the end leaves the audience questioning exactly how much of the story actually transpired.
There are many upsides and downsides to the growing world of streaming movies, but easily one of the most frustrating is the lack of permanence that exists in the system.

When I mention the movie American Psycho, what springs to mind? "Don't just stare at it, eat it"? Dropping chainsaws down stairwells? Huey Lewis and the News? Business cards? What about a lavish musical with music written by the man who did Spring Awakening? Prepare to have your mind blown.
The Doors and Apocalypse Now. Simon and Garfunkel and The Graduate. Richard Strauss and 2001: A Space Odyssey. Some of the greatest scenes in cinema history would be nothing without their added soundtracks. What if Tarantino
Before he become known on his own terms for being a kind of tightly wound guy who would go nuts on his family members or directors of photography at the slightest provocation, Christian Bale was well known as, well, a tightly wound guy
