What's conspicuously absent is a Whitney Houston track. In a bonus monologue at the end of the disc, the killer, Bateman, goes on at great length describing to a prostitute the importance of Houston's debut album and the significance of the lyrics to "The Greatest Love of All.
The director wanted to eliminate the satire from Harron's script, emphasizing the psychological character traits of Patrick Bateman. However, Stone could not agree on the film's direction with DiCaprio, who decided to star in The Beach instead. Bale remained committed, turning down other movie roles and auditions for nine months, confident DiCaprio would depart.
Bale also used Nicolas Cage 's performance in Vampire's Kiss as inspiration for this role. American Psycho has generated various academic works that examine the film as a form of social critique.
The one thing you couldn't do was think Bateman was in any way cool. Furthermore, on reading Ellis's novel Harron was struck by its extreme violence, wanting her adaption to highlight the book's dark humor instead.
Nonetheless, the film generated significant controversy for the scenes of violence that remained. The film has been analysed as a statement on white privilege and, furthermore that privilege as enjoyed by malesspecifically wealthy white ones, in America.
Bateman's ability to have such a prestigious occupation seemingly given to him, getting away with his crimes so American Psycho - Bleh - Bastards Love Expensive Hookers (CD, and the fact him and his WASP contemporaries are mistaken for each other which not only helps him get away with his crimes but is a metaphor for the boilerplate similarity of his ethnic and social classall buy into how Bateman is given apparent immunity from justice.
His realisation of this comes into American Psycho - Bleh - Bastards Love Expensive Hookers (CD at the end of the film, where he feels shocked of a total lack of catharsis. The analysis of his crimes being simply imaginary, however, has been criticised for overlooking the entire aspect of his undeniable, salient privilege Bateman enjoys. Director Mary Harron has been a prominent critic of those who claim Bateman is merely affected by an illness such as schizophrenia and therefore has imagined all his crimesand that her film nor the book had no social commentary.
The fact the film is presented as realistic and not surreal is said to confuse the audience into thinking that it must all be in Bateman's head, despite the director's stern objection. The Huey Lewis and the News song " Hip to Be Square " appears in the film and was initially intended to be on the soundtrack album, but was removed from the album due to lack of publishing rights. Koch Records president Bob Frank said, "As a result of the violent nature of the film, Huey Lewis's management decided not to give the soundtrack clearance.
They just went ahead and put the cut on there. I think what they're trying to do is drum up publicity for themselves. It said, 'Huey Lewis saw the movie and it was so violent that he pulled his tune from the soundtrack. AllMusic rated the soundtrack album three out of five stars. As promotion, one could register to receive e-mails "from" Patrick Bateman, supposedly to his therapist.
He discusses such developments as his marriage to and impending divorce settlement with his former secretary, Jean, his complete adoration of his son, Patrick Jr. The e-mails also describe or mention interactions with other characters from the novel, including Timothy Price Bryce in the film versionEvelyn, Luis, Courtney, David, Detective Kimball, and Marcus. However, the film's star, Christian Bale, was not happy with this kind of marketing: "My main objection is that some people think it will be me returning those e-mails.
I don't like that I think the movie stands on its own merits and should attract an audience that can appreciate intelligent satire. It's not a slasher flick, but it's also not American Pie. The marketing should reflect that. This marketing ploy did little to help the film's box office but the studio's co-president Tom Ortenberg still claimed that it was a success: "The aim was to gain exposure and awareness for the picture, and we did that," he said.
American Psycho premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The producers excised approximately 18 seconds of footage to obtain an R-rated version of the film. A special-edition DVD was released on July 21, For the edited version and R-rated cinematic release in the U. Some dialogue was also edited: Bateman orders a prostitute, Christie, to bend over so that another, Sabrina, can "see your asshole", which was edited to "see your ass". The unedited version also shows Bateman receiving oral sex from Christie.
The uncut version was released on Blu-ray on February 6, American Psycho debuted at the Sundance Film Festivalwhere it polarized audiences and critics; some showered the film with praise for its writing and performance from Christian Bale, others with criticism for its violent nature. The website's critical consensus reads, "If it falls short of the deadly satire of Bret Easton Ellis's novel, American Psycho still finds its own blend of horror and humor, thanks in part to a fittingly creepy performance by Christian Bale.
Roger Ebert gave the film three out of four stars and regarded Christian Bale as being "heroic in the way he allows the character to leap joyfully into despicability; there is no instinct for self-preservation here, and that is one mark of a good actor".
It becomes more grisly and surreal, but not more interesting. Hoberman wrote, "If anything, Bale American Psycho - Bleh - Bastards Love Expensive Hookers (CD too knowing.
He eagerly works within the constraints of the quotation marks Harron puts around his performance".
