The Machinist

Brad Anderson Spagna, 2004

Palmat's rating of the film L'uomo senza sonno

Good thriller with great atmosphere. The score especially stands out besides Bale´s performance. The story is not as clever as it might think but it doesn´t matter since Anderson really knows how to make it interesting throughout despite some pedestrian stretches. I also like the literary connections that Anderson has put in there for the viewer to find.
