Having had a lifelong interest in film, Mary Harron began as a music documentary filmmaker. She came to film directing at the age of 43 with her first feature, I Shot Andy Warhol.

The 2000 film American Psycho became Harron’s most successful, developing a cult following. Harron’s satirical films were often controversial for their difficult content; American Psycho was initially criticized for its violence against women.

In a 2015 interview with Dazed, Harron herself describes American Psycho, “I very much think (American Psycho is) a feminist film. It’s a satire about how men compete with each other and how in this hyper-real universe we created, women are even less important than your tan or your suit or where you summer. And to me even though the women are all sort of tragic and killed, it’s about how men perceive and treat them.”[/vc_column_text][rev_slider_vc alias=”women-in-film”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”More from Pryme Culture” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:24|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”sidebar-heading”][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”avada-custom-sidebar-cultureheadline”][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”avada-custom-sidebar-culturelist” el_class=”headlines-list-column”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”More from Pryme” use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”sidebar-heading”][ess_grid alias=”grid-3by2″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
