Watch The Machinist

Christian Bale shed a frightening 63 pounds to play the cadaverous lathe operator whose past is haunting him with a vengeance in a psychological nightmare that grips like a vice. Director Brad Anderson gets the balance between harsh reality and blurry mystery mind-blowingly right with this precision-tooled, finely calibrated triumph. Watch the sparks fly.
