The Machinist: review

The Machinist is such an accomplishment, an accomplishment that, big surprise, went almost unnoticed in Hollywood. Its utterly refreshing in this day and age to watch a movie so intellectually stimulating, its fulfilling to watch a psychological thriller that demands the audience watch, pay attention, follow along, and decipher for themselves without falling in to the usual Hollywood conventions. Brad Anderson instills a lot of atmosphere and slow paced tension here for the audience, creating such a brilliant Lynch-esque labyrinth of a murder mystery.
