New York movies: American Psycho (2000)

Flattering Bret Easton Ellis’s stone-cold satire with a devilish Christian Bale performance and scalpel-sharp period detail, Mary Harron’s thriller is close to peerless as a picture of ’80s-era vapidity and entitlement. This is the Manhattan of chichi painted plates (and securing the impossible restaurant reservation), Phantom of the Opera visual jokes and pounding dance clubs.—Joshua Rothkopf
