Adabasi's mashup of Christian Bale movies is a lot more entertaining than I expected it to be. I approached it with the mindset that it would be funny, but in a dark way.

I was also surprised by how well the narrative works. It isn't perfect, of course, but just like American Psycho and The Machinist, some things are meant to be ambiguous. The audience gets to fill in certain details on their own, but the overall arc of Christian Bale's character seems pretty clear. Once I realized how his character transitioned from Bruce Wayne to Patrick Bateman, I couldn't stop laughing. It was great! And the transition to Trevor Reznik was uncomfortable and sad, which is what I think Adabasi was going for.

I thought it was very clever to include clips from the famous Christian Bale rant in the places that they were.

Overall, this was pretty enjoyable to watch while I suspended my disbelief and let my imagination run wild with it.
Thank you Adabasi for doing something so bold and creative.
