Storyline

Joseph just broke up with his girlfriend and is not taking it very well. He thinks she is plotting against him with their mutual psychiatrist. His dog is missing and he suspects the people at work might be behind it. Then there is the unshakable guilt over his past. It just might all be bearable, somehow possible to live through, if it weren't for those damned 'monsters' that keep trying to kill him. Through an allegorical 'fable' that is told in parallel with Joseph's struggle, we are left to decide for ourselves in the end, who is the crow and who is the wolf., was someone out to get Joseph, was it a stroke of bad luck, or was it all in his head?

Quotes

Narrator: There once was a wolf named Lupold, who was black as coal... As thick as a tree trunk... And feared like death. He had teeth the size of carving knives, powerful claws of stone, and eyes that glowed like fat fire flies. He could smell your sweat before the first bead broke from your skin, he could hear your heart beat from miles away and he could see you even in the blackest of pitch.

The Machinist lite
18 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fabled is basically the Machinist minus Batman, minus a pretty well known director, minus the writer for Texas Chainsaw Redux, minus the main star's weight loss stunt (which was pretty freaky looking) and everything that millions of dollars of a budget brings.

That is what you are left with. Not much.

You also don't get a crappy ending like Machinist and all the ego.

At least this one didn't attempt to wrap the whole thing up like some 40 year old episode of the Twilight Zone.

Fabled was a nice try. That should be it's tag line. The filmmakers did a lot with what they had, but in the end I'd rather watch the version that had better production values and actors and that's the Machinist.

If it's gonna be a slow ride, it better be a pretty one.
