Trevor Reznik (Christian Bale) has not slept for a year. Wracked by exhaustion, his weary mind increasingly plays tricks on him. Then one fateful day at the machine shop where he works, he's involved in an accident and a fellow worker loses an arm. Reznik's guilt turns to paranoia when he discovers cryptic notes in his apartment and a ghostly apparition haunts his every move. Is it someone out to exact revenge for the gruesome accident?

Don't bother!! - The Machinist review by Kazzie

I was browsing the films and felt I had to write a little review on this. It was a while ago when I watched it but all I remember is that it is very slow, boring and not worth the watch.

I remember the plot being a little weird. Although Christian Bale is is a great actor, I think the film seems in a "b" category. I am a little phazed as to why he accepted the script!!

I think the end was ok as I recall but don't watch it unless you have a couple of hours you want to waste!!!

Memorable Physical Performance - The Machinist review by Jawbreaker

From Christian Bale, the weight loss is actually horrifying. Unlike the recent Hunger where you actually see the physical issues with such a low BMI, here Anderson focuses on the mental aspect of the character. It is a very stylish thriller, with a strong supporting cast however when you look more closely you can see the cracks and shallow depth. The ending felt a little too clever for its own good.
