The Machinist (Brad Anderson – 2004) B

Let me tell you, if you have not already heard, about Christian Bale in this film. He is thin, very very thin. He supposedly lost 60lbs for this role. By looking at him you’d think he lost more, he is gaunt, sickly looking…skin on bones. I actually thought he was going to pass out several time during the movie and felt sorry for him. Both Diana and I agreed that he is actually distracting from the rest movie. Maybe that is the point, this is a movie for and about his character, Trevor Reznik, and his obsession. It’s a good charcter role for him and the movie’s mood and color are worth the trip. The plot and ending are predictable and really are not the point.
