Yes, the Cannes Film Festival is finally over (read all about the winners here), but for some reason, I'm still jacked into the system and banging out movie reviews. I think I'm about halfway across the ocean as we speak and yet for some ungodly reason, I thought you all would be interested in my take on Christian Bale's last role before he took on that of Bruce Wayne (aka Batman!!), in another one of my favorite movies of the year entitled THE MACHINIST. Thankfully for many of you, this film is set for domestic release later on this year, so stay tuned for more on that. The film is directed by Brad Anderson, a man who is quickly making a name for himself as a solid, thrilling helmer (his last film was the underrated SESSION 9). The big joke with this film is that Bale apparently lost 60 pounds for his role and let me tell you, it shows and it's goddamn creepy! I think this is one of the first times in my own history of movie-watching that I actually felt rather convulsed by such a transformation. The man is f*ckin' rail-thin!! That said, his performance is tour-de-force, as is the story, which I quite enjoyed. 'Nuff said. Check out the review below.
