Movie: The Prestige (2006)

The Prestige DVDI think I might have let this one pass as just a reasonably entertaining movie, but it incorporated a few elements that have extra appeal for me. One is the research station on Pike’s Peak where Nikola Tesla conducted genuinely mysterious experiments. The other is a philosophical conundrum I read about in I am a Strange Loop among other places. I won’t give it away, but it’s a good brain warper if you give it some thought. These elements balance out the fact that if judged as a magic trick, the movie fails by its own criteria. As a movie, I like it.

  1. saw this. liked it a lot. david bowie shows, as he did in Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, that’s he’s a kick ass actor.

    good fresh story, good acting, cast well.. a movie that will most likely get better with age.

    ed norton recently made a movie where he was a magician. was very good.
