So did bateman really kill all those people including Allen or was it all in his mind? If so what about the police chase?. Nice film though

That was exactly what I did... I could have answered his question but I waited for what ever variation of FreshProduct would answer. More authentic answer for OP that way.


Are you running outta languages for your SN? May I suggest e-Braille? :..:: . ::::..:.

This. It's also been debated that there's implications that the person everyone (including his lawyer) confuses him with is actually Bateman, himself. Trippy movie. One of my favorites for sure.

Bateman: Ask me a question.
Girl: So, what do you do?
Bateman: I'm into, uh, well, murders and executions, mostly.
Girl: Do you like it?
Bateman: Well, it depends. Why?
Girl: Well, most guys I know who are in Mergers and Acquisitions really don't like it.

Yeah, after he made that crazy chainsaw shot down the stairs, I kinda figured that it might not be really happening.

Ehh. 

The point is that Bateman is a faceless zilch working a job his daddy got him so he retreats into a fantasy world. He's insulted by Jared Leto's character who doesn't even realize he's insulting him and Bateman is too spineless to say anything - thus the murder fantasy.

See thats what got me confused with the movie. Was he really saying those things to the people and they just didnt catch it? Or was that just in his head too?

Others think that the point of the movie is that our society is so wrapped up in what people wear, where they work, what restraunts/bars they go to, that they don't even realize who is who.  No one knows who  the other person really is, which shows up with the constant confusion of who is Paul Allen, who is Bateman, etc throughout the movie.  No matter what bateman does, he cant get himself out of this world he is in.

In the book, I thought he fantasized about a lot of the murders, however, he did kill some people.

I watched this movie like 6-7 years ago...didn't really pay attention to it, but I want to see it again. I just remember a scene in the diner and him peeling his face off. Strange shizzzz.
