True Story Trailer


In 2001, Michael Finkel (Jonah Hill) was fired from his job at the New York Times for creating fictitious characters and using them in an article he published. Not long afterwards, he discovered that Christian Longo (James Franco) had used his name as an alias while on the run after murdering his wife and three children. Finkel confronted Longo in jail, whereupon Longo began to explain what happened and who was really to blame for the murder. As Finkel began to go deeper and deeper into the case, he realised that while this posed a chance to be his comeback, it could also ruin his reputation and career. He desperately hope that he was preparing to publish the true story.

The MacHinist Review


Good

Trevor Reznik is six-foot-two, weighs only 119 lbs. and literally has not slept in a year. Haunted by increasing paranoia, plus insomnia and exhaustion, the man is wasting away -- a skeletal shadow of his healthy former self -- and he's hanging onto reality by a very thin thread.

So when a menacing new metal-presser at the machine shop where he works (quite dangerously since he's constantly drifting off and snapping back awake) begins toying with his mind (or it is just his own anxiety playing tricks on him?), Trevor's grip on that thread begins to slip, and "The Machinist" becomes a foreboding, noir-bending film of visceral, internalized tension and confusion.

Akin to "Memento" in its psycho-cinematic deconstruction of an obsessed man's disintegrating mental state, this movie taps into something disquieting from its earliest images of Trevor (Christian Bale, who insanely lost 63 pounds for the role) examining his bruised, emaciated body in a bathroom mirror after what evidence suggests was a struggle that ended in murder.
