I also think that Travis is played a little too crazy in the beginning, rather than gradually lose his mind, going from perfect sanity to madness.

Nevertheless, I think he's much more sympathetic and pitiable than Patrick Bateman, and that's really what makes the film.

It's not a case where we're meant to question whether or not Travis is "crazy" from the beginning. The movie shows you what the life of such a desperate person is like.

Travis is "on the edge" but I think he only becomes truly crazy as the film unfolds.

I mean he takes a date to a porn theater and doesn’t comprehend why she gets upset or even that it was a porno.

His connection to the world is never really there.
