I rewatched The Prestige earlier this week. The fourth time I have seen it and each time I pick up a little bit more of the details. Of course some things Nolan hits you over the head with repetitively to leave hints, which works on first viewing but seems a bit overboard on rewatch. Nevertheless, this is probably my fave Nolan film. Jackman and Bale are marvelous and David Bowie as Nikola Tesla is pure magic, pun intended. Maybe I am a sucker for Illusionist stories, but having Caine, ScarJo, Rebecca Hall, Piper Perabo and Andy Serkis in the cast doesn't hurt. Nolan has a knack for choosing superb ensembles. And Hans Zimmer is vital to his films.
BTW, I cant wait for Jackman to develop his Houdini musical on Broadway. Now that is gonna be something!
This was fun. Urban and Thirlby make a great team and Lena Headey has never been nastier as the villainess. Nothing earth shattering, in fact most of this we have seen in similar films before but still a solid two hour escape and a movie that gets the Dredd concept. Hope they make a sequel.
