"A little guilt goes a long way..."

THE MACHINIST is the story of TREVOR REZNIK, a lathe-operator who is dying of insomnia. In a machine shop, occupational hazards are bad enough under normal circumstances; yet for Trevor the risks are compounded by fatigue. Trevor has lost the ability to sleep. This is no ordinary insomnia...

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • As Trevor and Nicholas travel through the Route 666 amusement ride and turn left onto the "Highway to Hell", various odd but later significant scenes are momentarily sliced in with the strobe lights, but those scenes are only noticeable on a frame by frame view.
  • SPOILER: Ivan's license plate number - 743CRN - is the reverse of Trevor's number - NRC347 (seen at 1:06:36).
  • SPOILER: Miller says to Reznik, "I need a hand." About a minute and a half later, Miller loses his hand in machine.
  • The Machinist's writer, Scott Kossar, loves "Nine Inch Nails" and his original script had a quote from their lyrics on the first page. He always wanted the soundtrack to be written by NIN, but the director didn't want the movie to go in that direction. Nine Inch Nails' only official member is Trent Reznor, thus the name of Christian Bale's Character, Trevor Reznik.
