I know these will not help for trying to come back to US immediately but I would be willing to spend a couple years abroad and then transfer, is this a good idea?
So just a few Q's: I have not much experience in researching European masters but are these specifically recruited for in the way US firms recruit at the undergrad level?
Thus, we have girls tweeting about how sexy they find Patrick Bateman, the Patrick Bateman Halloween costume serving as a perennial favorite, and the sayings and catchphrases of everyone’s favorite Wall Street serial killer deployed in unironic fashion and received with fraternity style high fives.
Guinevere Turner reports with dismay that she is approached by men who tell her with pride, “I am Patrick Bateman.” As Ellis himself noted, while the reactionary Right didn’t bother to read the book (or much of anything else), the Left was horrified by it and tried to have the publisher shut down.
As for the protagonist, some of Bateman’s crimes are so monstrous that they had to be excised altogether.
Audiences are simply not going to sit through a movie star torturing a women for days and allowing rats to feed upon her sexual organs.
In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism.
You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument.
Up to this point, Freeman had been making a generic slasher movie with little motivation for his main character, Rachael, played by Mila Kunis. I seem to be the only person who is I have rounded up Christian Bale, Chloë Sevigny, Reese Witherspoon, Justin Theroux, and a fine screenwriter named Bret Easton Ellis, who is a very smart boy & has so far been a pleasure to talk to & conspire with. Just cough up the Option & I’ll talk to somebody else.
As always, the Left knows the Right, even the subconscious Right, better than the Right knows itself.
They feared the book because Ellis had unwittingly made his satirical vehicle of “Patrick Bateman” look attractive – a wealthy white man who enjoys a life of luxury and takes home supermodels from fashionable clubs.
The bad guy who is supposed to represent capitalist excess, male chauvinism, and the endless quest for social superiority somehow turns into the hero for many Americans. The Patrick Bateman of the book, is, as Turner gloats, a “dork.” His vaunted fashion sense actually isn’t very good and his take on pop culture is (deliberately) sophomoric and ill-informed. While he enjoys certain sexual adventures, he’s actually awkward with women and at a loss for words in certain social situations, especially when in the presence of someone of higher status.
His murders are products of frustration, the stereotypical “angry white man” obtaining power through violence when he can’t get it through sexual attraction or social grace.
