An insomniac lathe machine worker begins to doubt his own sanity after a series of strange occurrences around him. Superb psychological thriller, produced in Spain and directed by American Brad Anderson.
A dive into the cold and desolate world of Trevor Reznik (Christian Bale), whose severe emaciation and growingly strange behavior isolate him from his peers and co-workers. A study of delusion and guilt.
Mind-blowing performance from Christian Bale in the title role, who lost 28 kg (62 lbs.) after an extreme diet in preparation for the film. Great supporting cast and notable cinematography from Xavi Gimenez and Charlie Jiminez. A desaturated, cold palette works in perfect unison with the excellent screenplay by Scott Kosar.
The Machinist Cast: Christian Bale, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, John Sharian, Michael Ironside
