As an unashamed Nolan apologist, I often go out of my way to preserve the once commonly held opinion that he is one of the greatest directors of the 21st century. I love his scripts, his themes, his moods, and his iconic visual style. However, I also acknowledge the man has quite a few faults and short-comings, and none of these are more incontrovertibly demonstrated than in 'The Prestige'. The writing tries too hard to be clever, genuine emotion is scarcely conveyed, and the women are all very boring. Even the usually excellent cinematography of Wally Pfister goes overboard with it's variegation of browns, greys, and blacks. Easily Nolan's worst film (and that's including Interstellar).

Batman vs wolverine. Two magicians try to decode each others magic tricks when one of them develops the ultimate trick and the other tries endlessly to discover the secret. This movie has brilliant cast and acting, the writing is clever and the directing is fantastic.

A Devious, Intricate Masterpiece

Before The Prestige started rolling, I was worried that I had placed my expectations for this film too high. I'll be frank: I shouldn't have worried. Never was I expecting this film to wow me as much as it did. I was engaged from the very first second, and remained so until the very last. I tried to force myself not to analyse the plot when the movie concluded, but it's impossible. It's like being stuck on a riddle all day, and indeed, The Prestige is very much like a riddle. And so it messes with your mind. Films like this can drive a person mad. The many, many plot twists are often surprising (sometimes even shocking), and I adored every one.

Two passionate magicians, Robert Angier and Alfred Borden, are having massive success with their brilliant illusions. But when one o...

'You want to be - fooled.' - The Prestige

A true masterwork. The Prestige is dark, atmospheric and expertly crafted. Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale give some of the best, most nuanced and shifting performances of their careers. It is - by my mind at least - for all intents and purposes Christopher Nolan's best film and greatest achievement.

Yes the Batman films and Inception as well as Momento are all wonderful pictures and they are crafted expertly. However I firmly believe that none of Nolan's films gel as well as this - the one about rivalling magicians, towering ambitions, lost loves and damning obsessions.

Also some wonderful supporting performances from Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson, Andy Serkis and David Bowie. Oh and also Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman for their supporting ro...

"The Prestige" by Yojimbo

Christian Bale and Michael Caine are re-united with director Christopher Nolan in this beautifully crafted period mystery which sees two magicians locked into an escalating vendetta after a trick goes wrong resulting in the death of Hugh Jackman's wi.fe. Nolan proves himself once more to be as masterful at misdirection as the illusionists themselves, producing a wonderful looking and cleverly scripted tale of revenge that's full of twists and turns. His favoured method of disjointed timelines works very well, feeding the audience important plot elements at strategic intervals, keeping you guessing until, well NEARLY the end...when the final twist reveals itself, it does take a certain amount of suspension of disbelief, but hey, this isn't a documentary. The performances are all fine, alth...
