The Machinist (18-Jan-2004)

Director: Brad Anderson

Writer: Scott Kosar

Music by: Roque Baños

Producer: Julio Fernández

Keywords: Thriller

An insomniac industrial worker begins to lose his grip on his own sanity.

Trevor Reznik, a machinist working his life away in a factory, suffers from a particularly severe case of insomnia, having spent one year to date without sleeping. Emaciated to an alarming degree and gripped by a host of peculiar behavioral tics, the fragile Reznik gradually slides further and further into insanity, driven to take part in a series of increasingly bizarre events brought about by his paranoid belief that forces in his life are working to drive him crazy. The Machinist is a tale of man's fight against his own mind, charting the increasingly distressing behavior of an individual no longer able to trust their own thoughts.
