Watched THE MACHINIST, a rather confusing psychological thriller, which was totally hypnotic due to the uncanny emaciation achieved by Christian Bale, as the wigged-out insomniac. I find it difficult to believe that digital jiggerpokery isn't involved, as in the case of the rotund TV gymnast. I mean, he looks like a concentration camp survivor, and it's extremely convincing. How on earth, if it's genuine, did he do it? Putting on some weight for a part I can understand, to a degree, but to starve yourself to that extent just for a middling sort of movie, I dunno... I hope he got well reimbursed.
