American Psycho

image host
At this time there seems to be four different releases on American Psycho. The first was the US release, a single sided BR encoded in MPEG-2. Two more discs were put out in MPEG-4 about a year and a half later (an Australian release and an identical Spanish release by Sony). Shortly after those a German version was made available by Concorde Home Entertainment using the VC-1 codec and also chose an open matte format instead.

Comparison Review: LandofWhimsy (US vs AU) AVSForum.com (AU vs German)
     The bottom line seems to be that the most recent releases are the best. The distinction between the Australian and the Spanish release seem only to be realized in the supplemental footage. The German release is interesting as it uses an open matte frame and thus opens up the top and bottom of the image. Although this is not director's intent, it does have the advantage of filling your HDTV and giving you some Easter eggs (see screen four). The US version is the oldest and does suffer from some video processing correction (DNR and EE) but is still a decent transfer.
*Note.  German transfer is a bit shorter [Read: edited]
