great great but scary scary movie
April 29, 2018
Great, if disturbing, film. Timing, scene structure, writing, acting, all powerful. Above all, and within every aspect of this film, is the haunting specter of the wisp of Christian Bale.

Der schizophrene Trevor Reznik, gespielt von Christian Bale, hat seit einem Jahr nicht mehr geschlafen und fängt an an der Realität zu zweifeln. Brad Anderson ist Regisseur dieses Dramas. Ein Meisterwerk

Riveting thriller, with a stunning central performance by Christian Bale, whose physical transformation is remarkable method acting in practice.. Great cinematography, and cleverly twisting plot, a must see. Bale is masterful.

Hitchcockian mystery thriller that plays like an extended episode of The Twilight Zone. A skeletal machinist seems to be cracking up. Who is the bald guy in the red car? What is the meaning of the Hangman post-it notes? Why can't he sleep? It's huge credit to director Brad Anderson that he keeps you wondering right to the end in such a stylish way. He's enormously helped by the terrific Herrmann-esque score.

la cursul de vise spuneau ca este vorba de un insomniac

One of Christian Bale's haunting and risky performances, "The Machinist" might be dark and spellbinding, but it suffers from an ending that can be seen from a mile away. It starts off right, but once you hit the midpoint, you'll lose interest once you figured out the key plot points that the story tries to hide. It's a good to watch on a rainy day, but not much else. Besides, who doesn't want to see Christian Bale go nuts?

What a waste (literally, for Christian Bale). Respect to him for this transformation, but what a crap movie. So, so predictable. That weird Marlon Brando dude, that awful music. I appreciate the nine inch nails visual aspect, themes, and tone of the film, but that's all there is to find here.

A riveting character study of a man who is wasting away, suffering from insomnia and bouts of paranoia, 'The Machinist' is an excellent psychological thriller that has you intrigued from the opening sequence and amazed by the revelation at the end. Christian Bale's outstandingly devoted performance really anchors the character and the film. Directing, cinematography and music are also spot-on, creating the perfectly tense, ominous and dark tone with an overwhelming sense that there is something dreadful waiting just around the corner.

Bale is one of the best actors ever and if you don't agree with that statement watch this movie. It likely would not work with any other actor.

Christian Bale in what is probably his best ever role
December 26, 2017
Puntaje Original: 6.5

Uno de las más memorables interpretaciones de Christian Bale en un thriller oscuro, que a pesar de mantener la tensión en el espectador, el final resulta decepcionante.

I found this to be too slow, with a plot that isn't very interesting. Bale does a fine job at portraying an insomniac, as he dives deep into the role.

Aunque la película no lleva a ninguna parte, es conmovedora la historia y la atmósfera de misterio en toda la película. El guión es bueno, la actuación, la fotografía, son muy buenas, pero no llevan a ningún lado.

Creepy thriller that was well made with an amazing performance by Bale. The story was deep and kept you guessing what was going to come till the end. 4/5
½ September 4, 2017
The Machinist is one of Christian Bale's best career performances. It's also one of the best films of 2004, with an ominous tone, unsettling atmosphere and intriguing story. It's sure to become a cult classic. (4.5/5)

Christian Bale's performance and dedication to the role is amazing, but the story was stagnant as hell
½ August 29, 2017
Christian Bale was amazing. Can't say much about the rest of the film.
