"If you were any thinner, you wouldn't exist."

No, your eyes are not deceiving you! It's been too long since I last did a movie watchlist entry. I have three movies I need to post about, so I'm going to start with the most recent one I've seen and work my way backwards:

The Machinist (2004)
Written by: Scott Kosar
Directed by: Brad Anderson
Starring: Christian Bale, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Aitana Sanchez-Gijon, Michael Ironside, John Sharian

Synopsis: Trevor Reznik (Bale) hasn't slept in a year. Literally. Strange events at home, a frightening accident at work, and a mysterious co-worker only Trevor can see all breed paranoia and push him to investigate what he thinks is a plot against him. Along the way he involves a friendly hooker (Jason Leigh) and an airport waitress (Sanchez-Gijon) as he tries to untangle this web of fear.
