  1. Amazing deconstruction of this film. Thank you for the deep dive!

    Now for the nitpick.

    Near the end of Perception part 1, it says “Reflecting to society what society what’s to see. Saying to society what society what’s to hear.” Pretty sure you meant “wants to see” and “wants to hear” — or is that a misperception on my part?

    Also, is there a typo on Bateman’s business card? There should be a space after the ampersand in Pierce & Pierce, right? That typographer probably learned the REAL meaning of “pierce and pierce” eh?

    • Thanks, Gary! I’ll fix those. Definitely typos.

      I don’t think it’s a typo? I think it’s more of a stylistic thing.
