American Psycho

Bateman confesses the murders to his friend on an answer machine, then at the end meets him at a gathering. The friend doesn't believe any of his confession as someone said they'd seen Paul in a restaurant. Making the point that they're all so superficial that no-one really knows or cares who anyone is. Or it's all in his mind..."This is not an exit" on the door behind Bateman shows he stands as a symbol. Bateman is a satire on American Values. He is victimised by the "yuppie era".

Mistakes

In the scene after Patrick Bateman's second encounter with the detective in his office, we see Bateman having sex at Courtney's apartment. After he rolls off her, Bateman approaches the large, stand-up mirror in the bedroom. In the upper right hand corner of the mirror, a boom microphone can clearly be seen moving around to pick up Christian Bale's lines. The next time we get the same long shot, the microphone is gone.

Trivia

Willem Dafoe was asked to play Donald Kimball in 3 different ways: he thought Bateman was guilty, he didn't think Bateman was guilty, and he wasn't sure if Bateman was guilty. They were all blended together to make the audience not know what Kimball thought of Patrick Bateman.
