Indie filmmaker Mary Harron is an idiosynchratic director who has brought several uniquely feminine stories to the screen, in films like I Shot Andy Warhol and The Notorious Bettie Page, but her best and most infamous film is definitely the screen adaptation of Brett Easton Ellis' American Psycho, which featured Chritian Bale as a demented Wall Street psychopath who revels in manipulation, murder, and Huey Lewis and the News. Outside of Batman, it's probably Bale's most iconic performance, and Harron brings a spot on sense of humor to the film that makes the disturbing and often graphic murder scenes far more entertaining than they might be otherwise.
