The business card scene in American Psycho is three of the most riveting minutes of cinema you’ll ever see. Corporate lawyers at the fictional firm Pierce & Pierce play a kind of boardroom poker as they attempt to outdo each other with the new cards they’ve just collected from the printers – Pale Nimbus or Silian Grail, anyone? This beloved movie moment is also one of the most stylish scenes ever laid down and captures the power dressing of 1980s Wall Street.
