Harron does away with the outward excesses – murder, torture, misogyny – of Bret Easton Ellis' 1991 novel about the previous money-obsessed decade and serves up the essence of the novel in a more palatable form. That doesn't mean her film is soft – it certainly isn't. But where Ellis pushed his readers away, the director draws the audience in by encouraging us to collude with her satirical standpoint.
