I think there's a lot of truth to what you mean about living in their own, personal utopian "geocentric" (lol idk) world that blinds them from what's happening around them but I interpreted the ending as being unrelated to that.
The look you can catch on his face for a split-second when he's leaving the dry cleaners after bumping into the woman who recognized him just sticks with you when you go back and look for it. The blatant feign of happy to see her and small talk and then just as the door's closing and he whips around you see his face suddenly turn into a chilling, empty "I'm taking off my mask now that I'm done speaking with you" look. Crazy man.
American Psycho = classic....... I was lost at the end... I didnt understand was he just imagining all the things that happened or what..... but this is a great movie about social elitism.... I really enjoyed the scene where they all went out to eat lunch or something and everybody was like i got the bill, no i got the bill and every bust out heavy *** credit cards.... he looks at the bill and was like (insert ridiculous number) this isnt that bad lol........ Movie is awesome
For those who don't like war movies cuz of the alleged propaganda and other messages you may disagree with I'd assume you at least have a different opinion on war comedies.
I'm thoroughly enjoying Biloxi Blues

However, certain scenes like the one with Reese where he dumps her and near the end after the mass hallucination killing spree where they keep harping that they're not going anywhere without a reservation was clear the writing was making fun of these types of ppl.
Also, I wonder if there were any out there theories about the end cuz the part where he goes back to the apt to clean up all mess and bodies after he leaves a message for his friend and it's already done and the realtor lady tells him it's already been taken care of and not to come back was weird.
some say that everything was in his head
ive read that when its presented in the book it's clear that the realtor just cleaned everything out and didnt report any crimes to keep the property value up (she too only cares about money and status like everyone else in the movie)
Ok I see.
I definitely think that final act was in his head. It was just too wild. All those security guards, shooting civilians at ATMs and police officers, please, no way that gets covered up. I was working with the idea that he is a psychopath but also has some severe mental problem which caused some hallucination when he stopped taking some meds. He was at least methodical with his early kills but he completely unraveled in the end cuz deep down he really wants to be caught but the truth he just dreamed up the whole thing.

It's impossible to say "I can't have imagined him in it" (because we can't exactly perceive the unknown, right? Had it been flipped Bale-Leo we could just as easily be saying we can't picture Bale in it) but Bale's delivery and "face-acting" brought a Patrick Bateman to the table that I don't think DiCaprio could have.
