Genre Drama, Crime
Plot – Patrick Bateman has everything he needs to look perfect, from the clothing to medicines. However the more he desperately tries to conform to the anonymous image of the classic Wall Street’s yuppie, the less he is able to control his terrible impulses that, ironically, lend him his whole individuality. Bateman is an example of conformity into an unmoral society where conformism is amorality. However, his character seemed to raise a particularly harsh cultural issue more than other characters. His lust for blood is linked to the desire for possession of things, for the branded product and for the famous places. His crimes constantly remind us of our insatiable lust for consumption.
