    I picked American Psycho, but I really loved him in Velvet Goldmine too. This is a hard fucking poll. I've seen all those movies except Empire of the Sun and I'm Not There (he was in that?).

    He's awesome. best performance in American Psycho, but The Prestige has to be his best movie. (one of my all time faves)

    All of the above movies are great, and Christian Bale is always a fantastic actor. I gotta say, though, that the "The Machinist" seems to be the biggest test of his acting abilities.

    American Psycho is one of the greatest films ever... but he was also great in Rescue Dawn & I'm Not There (3:10 to Yuma was decent, but WAAAY overrated; "Best western since Unforgiven"?? give me a break, it was like the 4th or 5th best western of 2007 for crying out loud!)

    i just watched this the other night. it was good up until the end. that ending was the stupidest shit, it pretty much ruined the movie for me.

    have you guys ever read "American Psycho"?

    Reading that in middle school blew me away. The movie didn't work as well as the book obviously, but Bale still rocked it. He was the perfect Bateman

    This might have been hard if I only had to chose between the Prestige and Batman. But... American Psycho wins everytime

    I voted for The Machinist on the sole reason that the dude destroyed his entire being for that role.

    Patrick Bateman was classic though
    Check out Sleeping is Giving in for great mixes and other cool stuff
