American Psycho is now available to stream on Netflix Australia

September is just around the corner, which means it has been another quiet week on Netflix Australia. There are 20 new movies and TV series to be enjoyed from the Australia library. Here’s what’s new on Netflix Australia for August 29th, 2020.

First of all, here is the past week’s top highlights on Netflix Australia:

American Psycho (2000)

Director: Mary Harron
Genre: Comedy, Crime, Drama | Runtime: 101 Minutes
Cast: Christian Bale, Justin Theroux, Josh Lucas, Bill Sage, Chloë Sevigny

Before Christian Bale was The Batman, he was Patrick Bateman. Despite acting since 1986, it wasn’t until 2000s American Psycho before the Welsh actor really grabbed everyone’s attention. Sadistically brilliant, American Psycho should be on your watch list.

The highly successful investment banking executive, Patrick Bateman, hides his dark alter ego from co-workers and friends as he delves deep into his psychopathic and murderous fantasies.

VICE (2018)

Director: Adam McKay
Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama | Runtime: 132 Minutes
Cast: Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steve Carell, Sam Rockwell, Alison Pill

A second batch of Bale in this week’s line up of featured films on Netflix Australia. The method actor earned a well deserved fourth Oscar nomination in the Best Supporting Actor category for his role as Dick Cheney, one of America’s most infamous Vice-Presidents.

During the Presidency of George W. Bush, Vice-President Dick Cheney became one of the most infamous bureaucrats that shaped the world as we know it today.

Rising Phoenix (2020) N

Director: Ian Bonhôte, Peter Ettedgui
Genre: Documentary, Sport | Runtime: 105 Minutes
Stars: Tatyana McFadden, Bebe Vio Beatrice, Jonnie Peacock, Jean Baptiste Alaize

The Paralympics is one of the world’s greatest sports competitions, allowing thousands of Paralympians the chance to win glory for their nation. Elite athletes have their say on what the Paralympic games mean to them and what it’s done to promote diversity and understanding disabilities worldwide.
