A psychological thriller, Trevor Resnick hasn’t slept in a year. Frighteningly thin, paranoid and unhappy, he drifts like a zombie through a waking nightmare. Trevor knows that things haven’t always been like this; that there is some mystery in his past, if only he could unlock it. Christian Bale, who stars as the industrial worker, dropped sixty-three pounds to play this physically demanding role. Directed by Brad Anderson, the movie was filmed in Barcelona, Cataluña, Spain and is also known as 'El Maquinista'.
