Despite a relationship with Stevie Jennifer Jason Leigh , a pretty prostitute, Trevor descends further into paranoia, blaming his problems on an enigmatic figure named Ivan John Sharian.

The music in "The Machinist" is great, it makes the intense scenes so amazing. The drama in "The Machinist" is handled well the movie could've been handled very badly and been so many plot holes, but director "Brad Anderson" and writer "Scott Kosar" made the movie right.
One of my favourite things about this film is that it's filmed so incredibly, the scenes are filmed perfect, there's no Shaking from the camera man, this film is so beautiful thanks to the way it was filmed.
If you are a person who enjoys psychological drama films then I highly recommend you watch "The Machinist" as it is a superb film of Steve G Super Reviewer.
Jul 14, Christian Bale's dramatic physical transformation proves not to be the main attraction in this dark, gripping, slow-burn psychological thriller.
Isaac H Super Reviewer. May 02, Way better than expected. Surprisingly, Christian Bale isn't the only one worth seeing here.
Great film. Maymay A Super Reviewer. Apr 24, Insomnia is an all too common writing device that lends itself in creating a story where the lead character reality conflicts with the actuality of the world.
Much like Aspergers, Insomnia is highly favored in its usage to add flair to a story that in a direct narrative wouldn't have worked.
The Machinist is about an industrial worker who hasn't slept in a year doubting his own sanity. Its protagonist, Trevor Reznik, starts off as a sympathetic blank page.
Merely creating an image of man who from the setup is seen doing something bad, but upon viewing him live appears to be an innocent man suffering without a crime committed.
Reinforcing a positive image on Reznik personality and questionable one about his lifestyle. Once Reznik is setup as a character the next step is to fill in the blank to how he got to where he ended up.
Steadily through the course of the movie more about Reznik is revealed entirely through his dialogue. While visuals do play a factor in understanding Reznik psyche, it's not on the same level as the spoken words.
Revealing Reznik entire life story indirectly to the audience with Reznik interactions. Reznik is by definition and description is average, but his action in delicate situations suggest otherwise.
Until the revelation near the end Reznik maps other suffering onto himself. Turning exterior conflicts into internal ones when Reznik is uncovering himself through the worst possible action.
Aside from Reznik, another plot device is a hangman game on a post-it note. The word only has six letters and the last two letters are filled out.
If this plot device was to be removed it would have taken away from the writing. It understands that the journey it more pivotal than it's predictable destination.
Because of it, the word can be guessed correctly or make a guess that comes close to it, but doesn't detract from its story.
Instead it adds a dimension that's worth examining. Alongside his trouble psyche, poor physical conditions, and now his inability to defeat guilt are all traits that follow him.
Weaving an intelligent, psychological thriller that is both hard to read in development and engaging in its complicated protagonist. Director Brad Anderson creates an uneasy atmosphere at a steady pace.
A bleak, nearly colorless look, sadness and dread combined to portray the world through Reznik eyes. The atmosphere is aided by Roque Banos' moody score, but it is especially conveyed by the tasty cinematography, which is extremely desaturated--almost approaching black and white at times.
It suggests an appropriate desolation. This is also reflected in the locations and set designs. Everything relating to Trevor current matter in his apartment, the machine shop, or in his car is in muted, blue-gray tones.
As if fabricated by some unknown nature that has a score to settle with Reznik. Playing with his head that those around are after him.
In contrast to the brightly lit scenes that highlight a real world quality to them. Not removing itself from tragedy, Reznik in brightly lit scenes feels naturalistic.
Never does he feel anything in particular is dead set against him in the bad turn of events finding some truth to them. He says he is a new worker, covering for Trevor's friend, Reynolds.
Back on shift, Trevor and his co-worker Miller Michael Ironside are fixing a machine. Trevor looks over at Ivan, who makes a throat-slashing gesture.
Trevor takes a step back and his shoulder hits a button that turns on the machine. Miller's arm is caught and slowly entering it.
They try to turn off the machine and free him, but can't do it in time. Miller's arm is torn from his body, and seen still spinning around in the machine minus Miller.
They call for an ambulance and Trevor goes into his boss's office. They ask him what happened. He says Ivan must have distracted him.
His boss seems puzzled. They have no employees named Ivan. Trevor sees Ivan leaving in his red sports-car and follows him.
He pulls up next to him in traffic and says they need to talk. They go into a bar, where Trevor confronts Ivan with the fact that no one at the factory has ever heard of him.
Ivan insists that he does indeed work there and that maybe Trevor's boss and co-workers are playing a joke on him.
Ivan also shows Trevor that his own hand was maimed on a machine. After losing his fingers, doctors replaced his thumb with a big toe and his pinky finger with his baby toe, resulting in a grotesque deformity.
Ivan excuses himself to go to the restroom, leaving his wallet behind, which Trevor opens. He sees a picture of Ivan and Reynolds fishing.
He keeps it as proof that Reynolds knows Ivan. Back at work his co-workers are angry with him, seeing him as a jinx.
They say they do not trust him anymore. During the next couple of days Trevor is perplexed when post-its start to appear on his fridge.
They resemble a game of 'hangman. Trevor has no idea what is going on. Marie's cel rings and she excuses herself to talk to the caller, "Probably my ex.
The scares become increasingly bizarre and graphic, and at the end of the ride, rapidly flashing lights cause Nicholas to suffer a seizure.
Trevor feels terrible about taking Nicholas on the adult ride, but Marie seems quite forgiving about the whole thing and assures Trevor that when Nicholas wakes up, "it will be as if nothing ever happened.
He goes to the kitchen and sees that the clock reads and there's a Mother's Day card magnetized to the refrigerator that Nicholas gave to Marie.
He notices that his handwriting matches the "ER" in his last hangman post-it. He looks at an old photo album of his own mother and sees a picture that eerily resembles the one he took of Nicholas and Marie earlier.
Back at work, Miller comes by to get his settlement check and seems good-natured about the accident. He tells Trevor that he's very happy with the financial compensation the company has awarded him.
However, Trevor almost gets into an accident himself, which nearly costs his arm. He starts to become paranoid, wondering if his co-workers have it out for him.
He visits Miller's home to demand answers. Trevor accuses Miller of trying to get revenge. Miller doesn't understand why Trevor's so upset but eventually he gets tired of Trevor screaming at him, punches Trevor in the gut and tells him to leave.
Afterwards Trevor sees Ivan leaving the scene and he pursues him by car, but Ivan escapes. Trevor is starting to believe there is a conspiracy against him.
Trevor goes back to Stevie's for sex. Afterwards we can see that they have feelings for each other. After some talking, she tells him she wants to quit hooking and start a relationship with him, which is what Trevor wants as well.
He goes back to the airport diner to see Marie. The scene looks much different-- it's now crowded, noisy and dimly lit. The frumpy waitress behind the counter tells Trevor that nobody named Marie works there.
Trevor starts to freak out and yells at the waitress and the customers. He accuses them all of playing along in the conspiracy. In the airport parking garage, he spots Ivan driving off again.
He slowly tails him. He memorizes Ivan's plate numbers but loses sight of the car in a near accident. He then goes to the Department of Motor Vehicles to see if he can get Ivan's contact information.
The DMV won't help him unless he has a criminal complaint to file. Trevor jumps in front of an oncoming car so he can go to the police and pretend to be the victim of a hit and run, giving Ivan's license plate.
A detective informs Trevor that the plates belong to a car that was owned by Trevor and reported completely destroyed by him one year before.
The cops accuse him of pranking them.
