Film critic and host of the podcast Switchblade Sisters April Wolfe joins Amy this week to discuss Mary Harron’s 2000 film “American Psycho.” They discuss the movie as a dissection of the American male psychosis and consider the equally-weighted feminine reactions throughout. Plus, they talk its initial reception, what the film did for Christian Bale’s career, and its continued relevance as a satire of American culture. Should "American Psycho" enter The Canon?
