Will Hare 4 February 2007 Miss Lyczkowski AP Psychology The Machinist The Machinist is a 2004 thriller/suspense movie starring a one hundred and twenty pound Christian Bale as Trevor Reznik. It was written by Scott Kosar, the same man who penned the scripts for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and The Amityville Horror (2005) . The movie drops us into the life of Trevor Reznik, an underpaid insomniac who works in a factory operating heavy machinery. It has been one year since Trevor has been able to sleep, and he has also stopped eating as well. The little that he does eat he seems to vomit back up. Eventually, Trevor starts to see things that nobody else sees. The entire movie has you guessing if Trevor is insane or if there is really something bigger going on? After an accident in the factory in which someone loses a hand because of Trevor’s carelessness, Trevor blames the accident on Ivan, another employee at the factory. The only problem is that, according to his boss, there is nobody employed at the site named Ivan. Trevor continues to run into Ivan at the most mysterious of places, and still nobody knows who he is. In Trevor’s half-zombie state, he finds solace in the only person who pays him any attention – a prostitute named Stevie.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
