American Psycho (2000) One of the Best Minimalist Films Ever.

When it comes to sharing experiences, nothing beats a nice black comedy thriller! I recall watching this film with my ex-boyfriend wondering if I was ever going to get those 102 minutes of my life back again, but today, I see the Patrick Bateman genius. Undoubtedly I was subjected to stupid A.P. one-liners for the rest of our relationship but I persevered. Dang, I will admit it, I contemplated pulling the old DVD while designing business cards the other day...which begs the question, bone or egg shell? If you have not seen this movie, you must get it simply to watch the exchange below: 


Patrick Bateman: New card. What do you think?

Craig McDermott: Whoa-ho. Very nice. Look at that.

Patrick Bateman: Picked them up from the printer's yesterday.

David Van Patten: Good coloring.

Patrick Bateman: That's bone. And the lettering is something called Silian Rail.

David Van Patten: It's very cool, Bateman, but that's nothing. Look at this.

Timothy Bryce: That is really nice.

David Van Patten: Eggshell with Romalian type. What do you think?

Patrick Bateman: Nice.

Timothy Bryce: Jesus. That is really super. How'd a nitwit like you get so tasteful?

Patrick Bateman: [Thinking] I can't believe that Bryce prefers Van Patten's card to mine.

Timothy Bryce: But wait. You ain't seen nothin' yet. Raised lettering, pale nimbus. White.

Patrick Bateman: Impressive. Very nice.

David Van Patten: Hmm.

Patrick Bateman: Let's see Paul Allen's card.

Patrick Bateman: [Thinking] Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh, my God. It even has a watermark.

Luis Carruthers: Is something wrong, Patrick? You're sweating.
