American psycho Book Review:

In a black satire of the eighties, a decade of naked greed and unparalleled callousness, a successful Wall Street yuppie cannot get enough of anything, including murder. Now a major motion picture from Lion's Gate Films, released Spring 2000, starring Christian Bale (Metroland), Chloe Sevigny (The Last Days of Disco), Jared Leto (My So Called Life), and Reese Witherspoon (Cruel Intentions), and directed by Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol). In American Psycho, Bret Easton Ellis imaginatively explores the incomprehensible depths of madness and captures the insanity of violence in our time or any other. Patrick Bateman moves among the young and trendy in 1980s Manhattan. Young, handsome, and well educated, Bateman earns his fortune on Wall Street by day, while spending his nights in ways we cannot begin to fathom. Expressing his true self through torture and murder, Bateman prefigures an apocalyptic horror that no society could bear to confront.

American Psycho Book Review:

" Je suis créatif, je suis jeune, [...] extrêmement motivé et extrêmement performant. Autrement dit, je suis foncièrement indispensable a la société ". Avec son sourire carnassier et ses costumes chics, Patrick Bateman correspond au profil type du jeune Yuppie des années Trump. Comme ses associés de la Chemical Bank, il est d'une ambition sans scrupules. Comme ses amis, de il rythme ses soirées-cocktails pauses cocaïne. À la seule différence que Patrick Bateman viole torture et tue. La nuit, il dévoile sa double personnalité en agressant de simples passants, des clochards, voire un ami. Mais il ne ressent jamais rien. Juste une légère contrariété lorsque ses scénarios ne se déroulent pas exactement comme prévu...

American Psycho Spanish Edition Book Review:

La novela más infame de Bret Easton Ellis: un clásico contemporáneo que se ha convertido en símbolo de una generación. El sofisticado, inteligente y vanidoso Patrick Bateman trabaja en Wall Street, idolatra al joven magnate Donald Trump, cena en los restaurantes de moda de Nueva York y es capaz de distinguir un traje Armani a cincuenta metros de distancia. También le gusta violar, torturar, asesinar y desmembrar. American Psycho, la novela más polémica de Bret Easton Ellis, se ha convertido en el reflejo más descarnado de la sociedad hipermaterialista de finales de los 80 y en una de las obras maestras de finales del siglo xx. Bret Easton Ellis lanza una crítica corrosiva hacia el egoísmo y la depravación del capitalismo exacerbado: un retrato desolador, irónico y rabiosamente vigente de un mundo al borde del colapso en el que todavía vivimos. La novela más infame de Bret Easton Ellis: un clásico contemporáneo que se ha convertido en símbolo de una generación. «American Psycho sigue siendo la exégesis literaria más indispensable y salvaje sobre la sociedad que hemos construido.» Irvine Welsh.

Un American Psycho Book Review:

Brian De Palma is perhaps best known as the director behind the gangster classic Scarface. Yet as ingrained as Scarface is in American popular culture, it is but one of a sizable number of controversial films—many of which are consistently misread or ignored—directed by De Palma over his more than four-decade career. In Un-American Psycho, Chris Dumas places De Palma’s body of work in dialogue with the works of other provocative filmmakers, including Alfred Hitchcock, Jean-Luc Godard, and Francis Ford Coppola with the aim of providing a broader understanding of the narrative, stylistic, and political gestures that characterize De Palma’s filmmaking. De Palma’s films engage with a wide range of issues surrounding American political and social culture, and this volume offers a rethinking of the received wisdom on his work.

Un American Psycho Book Review:

This book is moving around two intricately interwoven topics, the history of film studies and the failed scholarly reception (or perhaps just failed reception) of Brian De Palma's films, this book asks troubling, provocative questions not only about what and how De Palma's films mean in the cultural and scholarly imaginary, but about the causal relationship of politics to taste (in this sense it's a much needed updating of Bourdieu's work) and about a certain un-ease at the heart of film studies itself. Further, this book claims to provide an authoritative, onestop guide to the basic facts abo.

Parallelism of character and concept in American Psycho and Cosmopolis Book Review:

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, University of Wuppertal, course: Issues in American Society - Literary Negotiations, 2 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis and Cosmpolis by Don De Lillo both are stories that depict the decadence of their time, hinting at social, moral and political issues that are of importance in their respective times. In both books New York as the world centre of capitalism serves as a stage for two main characters who are shapen by the enormous amounts of money they have at their disposal. The characters and their interaction with society are the central points in both books. While Don De Lillo’s Cosmopolis deals at a time no clearly defined, which is probably supposed to be the post modern world of the early 2000s, Bret Easton Ellis’ book is set in the booming New York of the 80s where people who work on Wall Street are treated like pop stars and many of them well known as heroes of capitalism (e.g. Warren Buffet and Donald Trump). The book by Bret Easton Ellis takes us into this decadent cocain addicted world, that basically revolves the hunger for parties and sex. The book by Don De Lillo presents a totally different atmosphere. The atmosphere is rather shapen by fear of those that have come too short in the capitalist world and the security needs of those who work on wall street who have by now become anonymous figures, that may only be identified by their stretch limousines. The world of Cosmopolis has become darker and more dangerous; wild parties are no longer celebrated, just as get togethers of business people don’t seem to happen in public, mainly for security reasons. The pace of the world has also changed as computers and video transmit news from all over the world into cars that have become indistinguishable from offices. Yet both books have a lot in common in terms of the topics they deal with and the kinds of characters they portrait. While Cosmopolis only draws a kind of gloomy atmosphere, American Psycho is also one of the funniest books I have ever read and has been turned into a fantastic movie, with which I have compared some of the scenes.

Intimate Violence Book Review:

"Tanner deals with the central question of all narrative texts: how the reader is manipulated into empathy or distance by the text.... This study... is the sort that needs to be redone in every classroom and by every mature reader.... Tanner offers provocative and useful discussions of rape and torture... " -- Choice "This thoughtful and disturbing book raises serious questions about 'the consequences... of reading representations of rape and torture.' " -- American Literature "In this incisive exploration of twentieth-century novels, art, and ads, Laura Tanner explains the mechanisms by which reader and viewer are implicated in violence. Equally effective as a challenge to textual assault is the grace and gentleness of Tanner's own prose. Intimate Violence signals the emergence of an astute and humane critical voice." -- Wendy Steiner Through an examination of such notorious works as The White Hotel and American Psycho, Laura Tanner leads us in a disturbing exploration of the reader's complicity with fictional depictions of intimate violence.

Black American Psycho Book Review:

Arthur Simon is an ambitious young man struggling with hedonistic tendencies that threaten to derail his promising career as a music writer in New York City. His girlfriend is an alcoholic who taunts and belittles him as much as she tries to revive their dying connection. His peers are transplants from the Midwest who worship and idolize him as much as they wish for his downfall. With an appetite for cocaine as voracious as his hunger for success, Arthur Simon hurdles past all warning signs towards the collapse of everything he's worked for, at the exact moment it seems his dreams are coming true. A tale of sex, drugs, violence, revenge, and betrayal, Black American Psycho is an explosive reveal about the fickle nature of friendship, love, and celebrity in the age of flare-up fame. The first novel from controversial writer Ernest Baker, Black American Psycho is a coming-of-age epic for the Twitter generation.

Mary Harron s movie adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis s American Psycho A feminist movie Book Review:

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, Catholic University Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, language: English, abstract: “I'm always shocked when people want to make movies out of my books. [...] They have cinematic scenes, they have a lot of dialogue, but often they don't have that narrative momentum a movie needs” (Shulman, par. 12), said Bret Easton Ellis, the author of the novel American Psycho, in an interview about movie adaptations of his books. Ellis wrote a total of seven novels and became one of the most famous authors of postmodern American literature. His third novel American Psycho was published in 1991 and turned into a movie in 2000 by Mary Harron. Yet, the missing narrative momentum Ellis mentioned was not Harron’s only problem while adapting the novel. When American Psycho was published in 1991, it was not well received. Because of its extremely graphic scenes of violence and pornography the novel caused a chorus of outrage among critics. Female activist groups complained that it was “a how-to novel on the torture and dismemberment of women” (McDowell, par. 1). Ellis even received death threats and had to face furious outcries from women... Ellis was surprised that the novel provoked such reactions because he intended the novel to be a black comedy and a critique of the capitalist society in New York City in the 1980s. His intention was to decry the greed, envy and the urge for conformity present at Wall Street at that time. However, the satiric elements of his novel were almost completely overshadowed by the violent and pornographic passages which led many people to misinterpret the novel’s message. The reactions to Mary Harron’s movie adaptation of American Psycho were much friendlier: Watching "American Psycho" is like witnessing a bravura sleight-of-hand feat. In adapting Bret Easton Ellis's turgid, gory 1991 novel to the screen, the director Mary Harron has boiled a bloated stew of brand names and butchery into a lean and mean horror comedy classic. (Holden, par. 1) In view of this change of opinion from the novel to the movie adaptation, it is justified to take a closer look at how Harron adapted Ellis’s novel. In the framework of the seminar "Literature and Media: A Kaleidoscope", this paper analyzes the rehabilitation of the novel focusing on internal changes and the resulting changes in the effect on the audience. Mary Harron rehabilitated American Psycho by turning it into a feminist movie.

American Psycho Book Review:

Una dintre cele mai controversate cărți apărute în America, roman-cult al anilor ’90, American Psycho a declanșat dispute aprinse. Patrick Bateman, personajul principal al romanului, este un tânăr frumos, educat, inteligent. Ziua lucrează pe Wall Street, sporind averea deja considerabilă a familiei lui, iar noaptea se ocupă cu lucruri care ne înspăimântă pe noi, oamenii normali. Acțiunea este plasată într-o lume (Manhattan) și într-o epocă (anii ’80) în care bogații devin tot mai bogați, iar săracii și nebunii ajung pe străzi cu zecile de mii. Iată de ce Bateman, care este cu adevărat el însuși numai atunci când torturează și ucide, se transformă în profetul unei orori apocaliptice. American Psycho a fost ecranizat în anul 2000, cu Christian Bale și Willem Dafoe în rolurile principale.
