Wondering why times are missing?

The Machinist

Christian Bale and Jennifer Jason Leigh star in this tough psychological thriller about a blue-collar worker who finds himself plagued with crippling insomnia. As his physical and mental state begin to erode, he starts finding mysterious notes in his apartment and has visions of a co-worker no one else can see. Has fatigue robbed him of his reason, or is someone somewhere trying to drive our hero nuts? Bale throws himself mind, body and soul into the role and it shows. (He lost a reported 60 pounds to pull it off.) Similar in structure to The Usual Suspects or Memento, but considerably more dreary in tone. 102 minutes
