Title: The Machinist
Post by: ColoradoB5 on October 08, 2005, 08:51:58 PM
Anyone ever see this movie with Christian Bale?

What a strange movie...and I have seen some strange ones.

First off, it looks like he lost half of his body weight to make it.  On top of that, you finish the movie never really knowing what the heck it was all about.

Whew, I need to  play some Halo to get that out of my head...

I've seen this movie when it was in the theatres and I really liked it.

I've only known Christain Bale from American Psycho and he played his role extremely well -- that movie hit the 80's excess to a T.   And it was shocking how he was withered down to near starvation for this role and managed to  do Batman soon after that.

I was amazed at his weight loss too.  I read that he lost 63 pounds for that role.
