The Great Scenes # 61: American Psycho (2000)

Directed by Mary Harron

This is probably one of the most memorable on-screen murders since Psycho and it gave me a new appreciation for the song "Hip to Be Square". In this scene, Patrick Bateman waxes poetic about Huey Lewis and the News, particularly their song "Hip to Be Square" as he prepares to murder a drunk associate. It's a bizarre, strange and really darkly funny scene. This film pretty much helped make Christian Bale the major actor that he is now.

Oh man if there's ever a scene in film that I love it's this one, American Psycho is actually my favourite film of all time believe it or not and this scene is one of the reasons why, incredible!
