    Your right about the clothing, ect it clealy signified a bunch of dysfunctional middle class Melbourne yobos with no taste or class.

    That said the productiion values were the best I have seen on Australian TV pity the only emotive response the characters evoked in me was one of loathing.

    I tried to read American Psycho a few weeks ago, to see what the hype was all about (20 years ago). I got about a quarter of the way in before giving up on it as a waste of time (and the first scene where he hurts the dog really pissed me off), but the clothes narratives are more over the top than the most descriptive thread on SF.

    Reading books where animals or small childern are deliberately hurt really makes my blood boil.

    I did see the movie though and it wasn't bad.

    Oh, but Gerry, it's art, don't you get it?

    Actually, I enjoyed reading American Psycho. Isn't there a part where Bateman does boil blood? Oh wait, no he eats brains. My bad..

    It's just a cry from megalomaniacal Bret Easton Ellis for attention.

    Gay Talese; another author committed to fine clothing.

    'Putting on a beautifully designed suit elevates my spirit, extols my sense of self, and helps define me as a man to whom details matter. Well-tailored clothing is a celebration of precision. When I'm wearing one of my custom suits, I'm in harmony with my highest ideals, my worship of great workmanship. In this period of globalization and outsourcing, of voicemail vacuousness and shopping on the Internet, there are few things more gratifying to me than standing in a clothing shop getting a second or third fitting from a tailor who is personally and pridefully engaged in what he's doing.'
