Movie Review: The Machinist and Lockout-Tagout

It's Thanksgiving, I'm in New York and I've had a bit of time to see some movies and read some books. This is the first Confined Space moview review about The Machinist, probably coming soon to an independent theater near you.

It's a dark pschological thriller, reminiscent of Memento. The main reason I'm recommending it to all of you health and safety zealots is that it provides an excellent lesson in the importance of OSHA's lockout-tagout standard, and the dire consequences of ignoring it.
