A thriller/mystery about the main character(Christian Bale) and we're trying to figure out who he is and what's going on with him. He hasn't slept in over a year, looks deathly ill, and has visions and hallucinations...what's real and what isn't? There's a strange vibe throughout the movie and Bale looks absolutely fragile. I found out during the special features he got his weight down to 120 lbs. for the role ! He just flat out didn't eat. Once again the dark knight goes the extra mile for a character.
Yeah I heard he just ate apples and drank coffee to lose all that weight, pretty crazy. Even crazier, he went straight from that to Batman Begins and got up to 230 lbs. in 6 months for the role
Thats some dedication.
Pretty good movie from what I remember though, think I'll have to check it out again.
