5.0 out of 5 stars Weird and compelling, 15 Feb. 2008
This review is from: The Machinist [2004] [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
OK, so I've watched The Machinist once and will definitely be watching it again.

I don't know what to say about it really - I think the description on the DVD case says 'Fight Club meets Memento' and I'd go with that.

It has a edgy, stark feel to it - very much a sense of sleeplessness - disconnected at times, not sure what's happening or what's going on.

And for all of that, by the end of it I wanted to watch it again - I suspect it's one of those films where a lot of stuff makes much more sense the second time round.

And to say Christian Bale is thin doesn't even begin to describe the physical presence and pathos, if that's the right word, that he brings to this role. Haunting.
