      A must for me! The existing UK bluray was generally seen as the best available until now and I suspect Cas is referring to the ancient poor US bluray in the review?

      Anyway Im sure this disc is a big improvement and Ill be buying it shortly.

      This film made Bale a superstar like Cage in Leaving Las Vegas, a lot of folks have a surprised look when they find out it was actually written by a woman.
      His a complete psycho and the film has stood the test of time, have this in my Apple library and pleasure to watch so many years on.
      In my top ten any day of the year, you can never get bored with it.

      I thought it was written by Bret Easton Ellis - unless you mean script/screen writer?

      Anyway, I watched this years ago and was a little underwhelmed. I might have to go back and give it another go - perhaps it was because the book was so disturbing.

      The book is really disturbing and I honestly don't recommend it to anyone unless you know what you are letting yourself in for! I found it difficult to put down...but had some crazy dreams/nightmares at the time not helped by medication I was taken at that particular time! True story. I will read it again at some point but Ill be ready for it this time! :D

      Yeah it kinda put me in a dark trance. I think one day someone will put it on film, I love the adaptation and this version but a lot was left out (understandably).

      Is there a slipcover with the UK one? I prefer the UK art to the US.

      All the above was quoted in the High-Def Digest review of American Psycho. Did you write that review?
