Australian Cinémathèque, GOMA: ‘All in the Mind’ spotlights films that consider our desire to understand how our mind works.
Based on the controversial Bret Easton Ellis novel of the same name, American Psycho delves into the world of Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), a psychopath whose immaculate designer wardrobe, Wall Street job and privileged social status mask a compulsive serial killer. Bateman’s meticulously constructed façade is an impenetrable identity enabling him to murder without suspicion yet it has slowly become a vacuum, which has consumed any last vestiges of his humanity.
