The Machinist
2004
Trevor Reznik hasn't slept in a year, and his physical and mental health have eroded. So when cryptic notes pop up in his apartment and he has visions of a co-worker nobody else can see, is it reality -- or just the next level of insomnia?

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

This film isn't so much a mind-fuck thriller along the lines of, say, Memento, as it is a warning about the anxiety, stress, insomnia, and loneliness we Americans feel today. It's good as both, and skinny Christian Bale is scary to watch go crazy.
