Based on the equally divisive novel by Bret Easton Ellis, the film American Psycho has been polarizing audiences since it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival nearly two decades ago. Set in the late ‘80s, released in the year 2000, and now seen as a cult classic, the horror-comedy put Christian Bale on the map - and also spawned an ‘80s pop-infused musical. In the words of director Mary Harron, the film also reads “as a scenario of female terror,” as relevant today as when it was made. Likewise, controversy over the film’s violence and descent into madness mirrors the concern over the recent release of Joker, which explores similar themes.
