Two Line Reviews - #247

Movie: The Machinist (2004)

Plot: A worker in a machine company suffers from Insomnia for an year,loses his weight and looks apalling. With some mysterious events around him, he feels his life is in danger because of a stranger he keeps meeting. Finally, when he chases down the stranger and grabs him for questioning, the shrouding mystery is unlocked and how!

  • CHRISTIAN BALE; What a transformation! He looks absolutely pathetic and puny to an unbelievable extent and his performance is terrific
  • The film's suspense element is its vital and it has been guarded well by a twisty little screenplay
  • The music and camera work are neat aiding this eerie thriller
'Nolan'ish movie with Bale in a bewildering get-up!!
