O Maquinista


Trevor Reznik is a machinist in a factory. An extreme case of insomnia has led to him not sleeping in a year, and his body withering away to almost nothing. He has an obsessive compulsion to write himself reminder notes and keep track of his dwindling weight, both scribbled on yellow stickies in his apartment. The only person he lets into his life in an emotional sense is Stevie, a prostitute, although he has an infatuation with Maria, a single mother waitress working in an airport diner. His co-workers don't associate with and mistrust him because of not knowing what is going on in his life that has led to his emaciated physical appearance. A workplace incident further alienates him with his coworkers, and in conjunction with some unfamiliar pieces of paper he finds in his apartment, Trevor believes that someone or some people - probably one or some of his coworkers - are out to get him, using a phantom employee named Ivan as their front. As Trevor goes on a search for evidence as to Ivan's schemes and whereabouts, Trevor may come to a true understanding of what has caused his insomnia.

The soundtrack of The Machinist effectively captures the eerie and unsettling atmosphere of the film. The use of dissonant tones and sparse instrumentation enhances the sense of unease throughout the movie.

Some tracks in The Machinist's soundtrack felt repetitive and lacked depth, failing to create a strong emotional connection with the audience. I wished for more variation and complexity in the musical themes to better complement the intense narrative of the film.

The Machinist has a dark and unsettling atmosphere that is reflected in its soundtrack, but at times I found it to be too overwhelming and dissonant, making it difficult to truly enjoy the music.

The choice of music in The Machinist is crucial in setting the tone and enhancing the overall viewing experience. The soundtrack immerses the audience in Trevor's world and adds to the suspense and mystery of the plot.
