Trevor Reznik (Christian Bale) has suffered from insomnia for over a year. The resultant hallucinations, paranoia, and strange behavior cause coworkers and friends to avoid him. His only friend is an airport waitress, and a prostitute who he begins to fall in love with.
A third individual is part of Reznik's life as well. Ivan (John Sharian) is a man who taunts Trevor relentlessly, though no one else can see him. In one situation, Ivan appears suddenly while Trevor operates dangerous machinery at work, causing a colleague to lose a limb. How can Reznik defeat Ivan, and how will he escape his bout of insomnia?
The Machinist was a modest success. Produced for $5 million the picture managed to earn $8 million internationally.
