American Psycho (Peacock)
On the outside, Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) looks like nothing more than just another yuppie working on Wall Street in the 1980s, but there’s something more sinister than meets the eye. As he becomes more unhinged, Bateman’s lust for drugs, sex, and vicious murder only becomes more deranged.
Why It’s A Good Option For Christian Bale Fans: For a lot of people out there, American Psycho was when they started to see Christian Bale as more than just another pretty face in Hollywood. Through flashes of brilliance like the one seen in the iconic “Huey Lewis and the News” murder scene and the string of violent crimes committed in the film’s final act, this is really Bale’s coming out party and would only lead to bigger and better things in the years to come. Plus, Patrick Bateman’s meticulous morning routine and obsession with business cards still stand out 20 years later.
