In late 1980s New York, Wall Street executive Patrick Bateman divides his spare time between fulfilling his obsession with status and conspicuous consumption and meeting his psychopathic need to carry out random murders. This social satire depicting motiveless evil and extreme violence as a commentary on its time draws clear parallels to A Clockwork Orange.
