      His Dad covered his tracks. His lawyer was the one who said he had dinner with Paul Allen in London. His father "practically owns the company", which is how and why his tracks are covered.

              there is no evidence to support that, Bateman's girlfriend even notices Allen call Patrick by a different name, there is no parallel as Allen is clearly Allen to the group.

      You could read it that way, if you want to.
      I prefer him getting away with it because no one actually gives a frick. Everyone is so self interested and their connections so superficial that even when he outright confesses, they say “no, I just saw that guy.” Because no one actually knows anyone, or really cares one way or the other.

                She's arguably the most evil person in the movie. Bateman at least has the excuse of being insane. He also tried to confess at the end. The realtor seems sane and even clever. But she's clearly covering up his murders so she can make a sale.

                I also like to believe the detective knew Bateman was guilty but also knew he couldn't prove it so he just had fun fricking with him

                That seems pretty weird to me - I remember reading about a court case from the 1990s where a home buyer successfully sued a realtor for not informing them that a house was haunted. You'd think if that was the case they'd be required to tell someone about a fricking murder.

              It doesn't matter what these hack-morons say about the movie 20 years later. What matters is the contents of the movie. The point of art is to interpret it. If all you care about is the intent of the author then you would never watch the movie for yourself. The murders in the movie are entirely ambiguous.
              If you want to go off artistic intent then why would they constantly film and edit different takes to purposefully confuse the audience on character motives if not to leave it purposefully ambiguous

            The point of psychosis is that you don't know what's real or not, not that everything is fake. There were real murders committed and moments of acute psychotic breakdown where he lost all control.

            The entire thing is about blurred lines. One moment he's making sense and then the other he's rambling about something arbitrary and you remember this person isn't mentally well. While it's certainly disorienting, there are key facts meant to anchor the plot and tell you this isn't all a big dream.

      Paul Allen 100% was killed in the apartment, or at the very least a prostitute or two was. The scene with the realtor is much more obvious in the book. It focuses in the excessive amount of roses that cover up the smell, and she focuses on the fact that he brought something to cover his nose with because he knew it would stink.

      That makes sense. The scene with her in his apartment is also the only scene in the movie that made me tense because she was such a sweetheart I didn't want to see her get killed.

    She brought him dangerously close to the feeling of being human and accepting and maybe returning love. He never can quite get there, but her capacity for that is in the background of why he allows her to live. The movie is written and directed by women, so this is dumbed down to the point of being completely moronic and almost arbitrary.

                That part was great, he just hovers over a bleeding kid saying "I'm a doctor..." and then slaps the mom before running away. Also the fact that he was skulking behind a trash can and lured him with candy, and then the scene describing how his feet were sticking out from behind it so the mom thought he was just lying down lol.

                I also liked the part where he reads a sign that says "Do not feed the animals, they will get sick" and throws popcorn at them.

      You can feel that the core meaning of this is being implied in that scene. Jean hits too close to home when she asked him about making someone happy, and as Patrick is speaks his mind and tells her that he wants a "meaningful relationship", his gf called, and reminded him on the spot of that he is having a superficial and meaningless relationship. Disgusted by that, he lets Jean go. Of course, the main things that steals the show in that scene its bateman's autism and the black humor, but you cant have bateman always monologuing about everything in the movie. Also, that part that you have posted, is really hard to capture 1:1 in camera and have bale narrating it.

        Yes it would be very difficult to capture that scene, but in the book Jean is a very different woman and more meaningfully drawn out. In the movie she's an easy target that gets to live because of the implied feeling of pity or tenderness he has for her. Not much else is provided. In the book, she gets under his skin a lot more.

          I think thats a problem because she has little screen time in the movie.
          In the book, she is more developed as a character. Bateman really enjoys confessing stuff about him to her because he feels that human connection with her. The movie kinda suffers from its small runtime and it shows during the end, but I guess almost all the budget went to licensing all these songs for the movie and couldnt do more.

      I'm not sure if I'd go so far as to say he truly liked her, because there's an element of detachment to all of Patrick's feelings. It's almost like Patrick is watching someone else genuinely enjoy another human's company, and doesn't even know what to make of what he's seeing. Bateman's emotions are real but he never fully merges with them, they're like a dog he deliberately chooses to let off a leash. He just didn't know the dog might be capable of doing something other than maul someone to death.

    Im guessing Easton Ellis went to private school or had private school friends and he resented them. The murders of the poor represent the contempt most of them have for the poor. The scenes where they pretend to care about them is how they go on around each other genuinely. The murders may have been metaphorical. All the other interactions like how much stress Christian Bale has over the most mundane comparisons with his peers is about what actually matters to them. Really minor competitions with each other over things that dont matter but they agonize over it.
    Then in the end when he finds out that the murders didn't happen and they were just a fantasy, he finds out his monstrous life doesn't matter. He never existed. Doesn't he say that at the beginning? So Easton Ellis wrote a book about how much he hates his friends/ex friends. Scathing satire or a seething oddball?

    I might be onto something here.

      And how he fantasizes about killing the "cool" guy who in the movie comes across like a douche in the brief time we get to see him. He doesnt kill him. What he did, didnt matter at all. So maybe when he "kills" him its just some really minor social interaction where he felt he got the better of him. Everyone else is like "what? The guy is fine."

    Just by the movie and only by the movie:
    Is implied he despises her but is not sure why,and maybe because her good nature is something unknown to Bateman,he doubted more and find no pleasure in doing.

    Many crimes happened but Bateman is a mumbling idiot,if someone as his rich father covering his fails he's not gonna know,make him more detached from reality.
    Dude barely knows how to talk to a bad payed detective [probably corrupt] he doesn't even do any work, obviously he's some Hardcore Nepo Babie.
    Bateman is not different from modern influencers,a true Psycho by lack of empathy and connexion.

    I think it's because of his egotism and not referring to her at all. He knows she's obsessed with him but that's not the issue with drugged out narcissists. It's the promise he made to take her to Dorsia. A promise he cannot follow up on. It makes him vulnerable and he just wants to extricate himself from any situation that involves that feeling and get back to his original power fantasy. Regardless of if he did the killing or not, this is what the whole book is about.

      She brought him dangerously close to the feeling of being human and accepting and maybe returning love. He never can quite get there, but her capacity for that is in the background of why he allows her to live. The movie is written and directed by women, so this is dumbed down to the point of being completely moronic and almost arbitrary.

    I watched it seriously for like the second or third time about 18 months ago, and I noticed a few things: all the alpha chad Reaganite businessmen are virtually identical. They all wear the same-ish smart suits, have similar hair, attitudes, willingness to engage with the city (restaurants, nightlife, some recreational drug use etc). Patrick, Paul Allen and maybe one or two others also exemplify "the look" of evil: tanned, good hair, ruthless. The tanned skin tone is the most important thing, because the (comparatively) HALFWAY DECENT HUMAN BEINGS have a more pallid complexion (and are also a bit ugly, meaning they're more human), especially the main prostitute and Luis, and I think one or two others. There is a very subtle coding of white people's skin tone in the movie which is used to separate off these "decent" untermenschen from the tanned alpha chad dicks who personify Capital. The men constantly compare themselves to each other, a hyper-feminine activity in which they pay very close attention to apperances. I bet the casting process was very interesting. I wonder how Mary Harron discussed what she was going for with her casting person (if she had one).

      This has gotten even worse with men over time because its not just yuppies doing it anymore. I watched a science experiment on Youtube and one of the top comments was some homosexual complaining that the presenter had bad posture. It didn't come across like a joke or a roast either, it was catty, feminine b***hiness.

      The book is basically Patrick rambling about whatever happened that day, including hallucinations, endless descriptions of what he's wearing, hallucinatory encounters with celebrities, the narration inexplicably switching to 3rd-person during the shootout.
      It's not Ulysses or anything but the way it's written is pretty interesting. It's mostly written in a dry, sociopathic style, but occasionally slips into "yeah, he's losing it" territory, often with completely mundane scenes.

      To go on what the other guy said, there's an entire chapter in media res of him having a severe mental breakdown in downtown, running around and stral8ng a sandwich and going to a israeli diner and getting really upset that the waitress refuses to give him a milkshake because it's not kosher. You should read it.

      Imo there's more evidence to it being real in the book. I think it was Jean's neighbor or Evelyn's or Courtney or whoever, who gets murdered and it freaks her out. I don't remember if Patrick explicitly said he killed her or if it was heavily implied, but later in the book that same scene has police tape around it and the woman is still freaked out by it.

      said, and also kind of a book called Gilligan's Wake which is also heavily Cinemaphile related.

      It's a book about each character from Gilligan's Island but imagined in different ways. The Professor is the only one which directly relates to the tv show, in his chapter his a CIA glowie running an experiment about keeping civilians trapped on a fake island, he's able to leave at night via secret tunnels and sabotages every attempt at escape. Mary Ann is a permanent innocent whose hymen regrows after every sexual encounter, the millionaire is a rich old shut in who gets his news of the world via fake comic books that glowies send him, its been a while since I've read it but the vibe reminded me of American Psycho even though the subject matter is pretty different.
