In a spellbinding dramatic performance, Robert Downey Jr. portrays Julian, a Beverly Hills Brat who has it all: looks, charm, a rich father - and a drug habit. His friend and girlfriend and trying to help, but Julian's world is crumbling so fast, he might just take them with him. The result is a powerful and compelling story of three kids who started out with everything... and are about to end up with Less Than Zero.

My brief reading online explains why the film ended up the way it did (producers, studios) but I was still left wondering. "Why?" Bret Easton Ellis' novel is about a nihilistic, spoilt teenager floating through life doing pretty much what he pleases. The film however is turned into a moral tale of drug abuse. Shame, because I think American Psycho proves how well Ellis' books can be adapted into films.
