* ''TheMachinist'' was mostly noted for the extreme method acting and weight loss of Creator/ChristianBale, but one of the [[DidDoTheResearch small touches]] that impressed me was that in some of the scenes (notably the one where Trevor drifts off momentarily in his car and is awoken by Ivan) the colors are over-contrasted and bleached out. Anyone who has ever undergone serious sleep deprivation will know that this is a common symptom, especially after closing the eyes for a short period of time. - Slave
