Notes:
Look in the mirror.

Installment #4 (AUDIO, 97 MINUTES) American Psycho was released in 2000, based on a controversial 1991 novel by Bret Easton Ellis, and set in 1987 Manhattan. Thus, a significant crash quietly looms over all the film's detestable Wall St. yuppie characters.

Its focus is a darkly satirical character study of a man who's arc travels from psychopathy to psychosis. Maybe.

We'll discuss...

- the film's (and book's) motives, message, and impact
- its themes of image over identity, conformity, self-denial
- its relatable emotions of jealousy, fear, and hopelessness delivered to us through incomprehensible characters
- and much more

PICTURE OF THE MONTH CLUB is a monthly series featuring Dutch - a delightful, insightful and successful film maker who wants to teach you the grammar and logic of cinema. Many will remember Dutch from the CINEMAnufacturing series.
