depiction in Cosmopolis of a passive,
limo-encased master of the universe makes one nostalgic for the days when such
ruthless tycoons wielded chainsaws. In Mary Harron's lacerating, hilarious
adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis's unfairly maligned American Psycho (2000),
future Bruce Wayne Christian Bale electrifies as the title psychopath, Patrick
Bateman, who may or may not be turning his specialties of mergers and
acquisitions into "murders and executions."
