THE MACHINIST (2004) ****

The best mindfuck movie since Memento. Christian (American Psycho) Bale stars as Trevor Reznik, an insomniac who works in a machine shop. He becomes increasingly paranoid when a worker loses an arm, a new employee starts stalking him, and when he begins getting bizarre hangman messages on his refrigerator. The ending will make you think of both Fight Club and Memento. Co-starring Michael (Total Recall) Ironside and Jennifer Jason Leigh as a helpful prostitute. This would make a good double feature with Batman Begins because Bale made them back to back. Seeing his frail figure in this movie, it’s hard to fathom, that it’s the same muscular guy in the Bat suit. Directed by Brad Anderson and written by Scott (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake) Kosar.
