Big Apple Cinema 5 Movies Set In New York: American Psycho

Screen Junkies present their choice of great movies set in New York. American Psycho (2000) is among them! Check out the rest here.

American Psycho
When building a list of the five best movies set in New York list, you must include “American Psycho” in the top five. Based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis, this movie has been called misogynistic and mean-spirited, but the fact it is directed by a woman makes the first one wrong, and the fact it’s brilliant makes the second misguided. Christian Bale proved he could be the perfect Bruce Wayne in this movie about a yuppie Wall Street businessman who works as a serial killer when the lights go down. It’s a masterpiece, and one of Bale’s best roles.
