American Psycho: Not only is the movie, American Psycho, a dark thriller about the charmingly dangerous, Patrick Bateman a masterpiece, Bale’s transformation for this movie is laudatory as is his acting.

From losing over 60 pounds to putting it on again for Batman then changing it all over again for the pot-bellied, con man Irvin Rosenfeld, Bale makes ‘workout’ shy away in admiration.
