Synopsis


The Machinist
Brad Anderson directs the psychological thriller The Machinist, a production of Spain's Filmax company. Christian Bale plays Trevor Reznik, a factory lathe operator who has developed a serious case of insomnia. Lack of sleep has already started to wear down on his brain and his body. When he's involved in an accident at work, his co-workers turn against him. He starts to find strange notes in his apartment and see people that apparently aren't there. Jennifer Jason Leigh stars as call girl Stevie. The Machinist premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

    This is one of my wife and I's favorite movies, and Christian Bale is one of our favorite actors. He should have won an award for his role in this. He had to lose some 50 to 75 lbs. for this role, he weighed like 135 to 145 lbs., give or take. No one, other than Robert De Niro in Raging Bull, has under gone such a drastic weight change. Plus, a lot of people don't know this, but he had to turn around and beef up to 220 lbs. for Batman Begins. I think he's one of the best actors of this generation. As far as the film, this is a great psychological thriller that will keep you guessing right to the end. I highly recommend it! Also, another great psychological thriller with Christian Bale is American Psycho.

    Psychologically Mind-Blowing!

    "The Machinist" is such a great film. When the movie ended, it literally blew my mind and all the pieces of the story began to fit together. Basically as a psychological thriller the movie did its job and executed it very well. Christian Bale did an amazing job acting and shockingly went to extreme lengths to prepare for this role, which was amazing by the way. This movie also looks absolutely clear on Blu-ray. Overall, I highly recommend this movie to anyone and especially to anyone who's a Christian Bale fan.

    Christian Bale's acting in The Machinist is simply superb. His portrayal of a sleepless man sinking further and further into instanity is completely believable and even understandable. The amount of dedication he has as an actor is quite apparent in his physical apparence. Pretty amazing that he went from this skinny to Batman.

    This was a fantastic movie where the lead character slips into the darkness because of a secret from his past. I loved the dedication of Christian Bale who absolutely pours his heart and soul into the darkness that surrounds him.
