the film is a different bag of ham and i'd say that he kills no-one. quite how this doesn't still make it a satire, i'm not sure. the film is still an excellent satirisation of the self-obsessed world of high flyer's in mid-late 80's new york.

OK then less of a satire, I still think it's important that the killings are real. The idea being that if you were rich, handsome and successuful in the 1980s you could literally get away with murder.

that's probably the point that the book might be making (i'm not sure, as i'm too lazy to read), but i don't think that's ever the intention of the film. the film is much more focussed on the materialism and self-obsession that became dominant forces in the 80s, rather than the idea that you can get away with murder if you're young, handsome and rich.

It's just, that since nobody cares for you/what you're doing, you can chat about your serial killing at a dinner party and noone cares, since noone is listening.

That's it, everyone is too focused on materialism and narcissism to notice the nail gun or machete.

And many of the murders are about people being disposable, hence all the whores and the poor tramp that gets his nose cut in half.

nope, just with themselves; it's bateman who has some desire to belong, but isolates himself through his own actions.

Well, that's what their society is about. If it would be all about charity they'd spend all their money on the third world. The selfishness is a symptome not the illness.

It's all about the business cards. Especially when they got a water-mark... *starts sweating*
