The Prestige

Well, Inception is coming out veeeeery soon, and I wanted to get up to speed with all the Christopher Nolan movies (I have only seen The Dark Knight, yet I call him my favourite director haha). The Prestige (2006) is one great example of Nolan's talents, even though I am sure all of his films are.
Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman) and Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) used to be friends and assistants to magician Cutter (Michael Caine). But when Angier's beloved wife dies during a trick, he leaves and pursues other areas. Borden becomes a magician, and when Angier finds out, he becomes jealous. It all becomes a story of rivalry when these two become better and better at performing, and Angier becomes obsessed with out-doing Borden.
This is one of those films which you think you have sussed out, but then it turns and you have to suss it out all over again. I must admit, with one watch I find myself a little confused about what happened during it, and will definitely be watching it again at a later date. The Prestige is a film which is dripping with the genius of Christopher Nolan, and I don't think words can describe how great this guy is. If you want a film which has perfect performances and actually gets your brain working, try this one...and then watch it all over again.


  1. The film messes with your mind in so many ways, but it all pays off. Bale and Jackman are perfect, and they really do have you wondering, who really is the good guy, and who really is the bad guy? Good Review!
