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.
I really enjoyed this one. A very interesting take on Bruce Wayne's madness. Edit did a great job of mixing parts of batman begins, american psycho, and the machinist, as well as the infamous christian bale rant audio.
My favorite part was how Patrick Bateman could not get a reservation at Dorsia, but turns out that Bruce Wayne owned the joint, purely awesome.
