AMERICAN PSYCHO on HBO this Month

Postby kmkmiller » 14 Aug 2012

Just a shout out to AMERICAN PSYCHO which is showing on HBO these days.

Firstly, directed by a woman, Mary Harron, which is so important to note as the film business is still a predominant dude's club.

Second, it's about a killer. Or it's about a guy who he's a sadist killer.

Surprised to see Adam (Justin Theroux) in it. AMERICAN PSYCHO came out a year before MULHOLLAND DRIVE.

The business cards. The pop music monologues.

Not to sound too pretentious one of the great things about Lynch is he forces you to really watch his movies in order to understand them. I mean I will admit the first time I saw MULHOLLAND DRIVE, the camera falling asleep on the pillow went right over my head.

So what did I notice in AMERICAN PSYCHO a couple days ago. The "This Is Not An Exit" sign on the door behind Patrick Bateman in the final scene.
