+ fantastic direction
+ fantastic acting
+ really great music (the first double-piano tune is fantastic)
+ surprisingly funny at times
- abrupt ending feels cheap, and makes it feel like while they were well made, the movie was kind of pointless as a whole, there really isn't any arc to it
- excessive graphic nudity (nudity is fine, and the movie needed it, but the graphic nudity is just overdone here with the 20 shots of Micheal Fassbender's junk, or the way some of the sex scenes were shot where they basically zoom in on MF's pubic region taking this girl from behind... really? Because we couldn't figure out what he was doing back there? It didn't add or enhance anything and unfortunately just became a distraction and a detraction from the effect and quality of the movie, though it's still more of a minor complaint)
after watching it I basically figured this out... This is the prequel to American Psycho. Well hell, it could be. Regardless it's an extremely well made movie from the great direction to the acting to the music, but although it has a strong concept where the movie falls is with it's script. Although well written in terms of dialog, and the concept is interesting and there are moments of brilliance, it never comes together well enough to truly fulfill the viewer. While the climax is interesting, the ending following it feels cheap as it happens so quickly and offers no resolution to anything, as if we really didn't see any character evolution in the movie... instead we just watched him stay the same for two hours, despite what happened in the end.
