    A Dark and Haunting Nightmare

    Trent Reznik hasn't slept in a year. His body and mind are literally wasting away. When he becomes distracted on the job a fellow co-worker is disemembered. This description may not seem like much, but this brilliant, and haunting indie mystery/horror film is truly something to behold. Brad Anderson's (Session 9) The Machinst is a prime example of a great, non-Hollywood film. I was impressed with his previous work, Session 9, but not wowed because of the jilted structuring of the film. The Machinst's structure will have your head in knots, but pulls all the little pieces together at the end. I can't say much more about it without spoiling it. Just see it! You won't regret it.

    He makes movies that he would want to see!

    When you break it down the Machinist is all about Guilt, and How "A little guilt can go a long ways". It was a great movie, and to see someone who gets so dedicated to their work, as to lose somewhere around 60-70 Lbs, when he already has a great physique. Christian say's "I like to make movies that I would want to see". I believe that Christian is proving him self to be a very diverse actor, I don't think I have seen him in the same kind of movie twice.

    Interesting movie!

    I love movies with Jennifer Jason Leigh she is so talented in her roles. I thought Christan Bale did a great job, I can't wait to see him in Batman Begins.
