El Maquinista * Brad Andersson

the machinist

“If you were any thinner, you wouldn’t excist”. I suppose you all heard about Christian Bale (“American Psycho”) who starved himself to weighing almost nothing for this film and six weeks later being in his normal proportions for the shooting of “Batman Begins”, so I won’t say too much about that. Bale is playing a man who hasn’t slept for a year and thus ended up in living in some sort of dream world. When he accidentally causes a co-worker to loose an arm in the factory where they work, Trevor Reznik is eaten by guilt and his mind starts to play tricks with him.
Good acting, a weird story and a nice atmosphere makes this film a nice viewing experience.
