Martin McDonagh continues to make nothing but quality movies one after the other. A simple premise made all the better by a phenomenal cast.
Chrstian Bale does a phenomenal job at playing a skeleton.
Christian Bale also does a phenomenal job at playing skinny guys, muscley guys, psychopath's and fat, flabby con men (american hustle).
From the minute the machinist started I knew it had a memento feel to it (the movie isn't entirely in order) and a fight club feel to it (the tone and the darkness). The machinist is one of if not my favourite Christian Bale movie, its got phenomenal performances…
