The Machinist is a psychological thriller film which follows Trevor Reznik, a factory worker who suffers excessive weight loss as a result of not being able to sleep for over a year.

Christian Bale underwent a massive physical transformation for his thoroughly mesmerizing portrayal of the troubled and paranoid machinist, reaffirming his status as one of the finest and most dedicated actors off his generation.

The brilliant cinematography sets up a dark and bleak background where we follow Trevor into the depths of his despair. The Machinist is one of those films which will keep you engrossed till the very end, and will linger in your mind for long after it is finished.
