The Prestige

One of the chief aspects of The Prestige is, well, the prestige - the point in the magic show where the magician shows the audience something they've never seen before. And, as Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) warns, a good magician should never reveal his secrets, for without his secrets he is nothing. And yet the best part of this show - just as in Memento, the first film written by the Nolan brothers - is the revelation of all its secrets, the part where the audience figures out how everything is pieced together...

A full review will follow when I have the time, but just wanted to note that this was a great film, some fine, solid acting by Hugh Jackman (one does feel sorry for his character in the end) and Christian Bale...



Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman in one film? This one I must see.


You can do magic
You can have anything that you desire ...
