The Prestige
2006
At the dawn of the 20th century, rival magicians Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman) and Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) endeavor to reveal each other's secrets. Obsessed by the escalating competition, the two illusionists begin to perform increasingly risky tricks, which soon turn deadly. Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson and David Bowie also star in this taut psychological thriller from director Christopher Nolan.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

One of Nolan's lesser mindfucks, this one deserves its cult following for its period atmosphere and good performances by Bale and Jackman. But it fails to say anything with its convoluted revenge story, and its explanation of the magic tricks is a cheat.
