The Prestige - Review

“Are you watching closely?” And so begins The Prestige, Christopher “The Dark Knight” Nolan’s masterful, intricate revenge thriller.

Fin-de-siècle London: two magicians (Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale), once friends, now bitter rivals, wage an increasingly vicious campaign to outdo each other and create the most dazzling stage illusion. The film constantly challenges the viewers’ expectations, both in its elaborate non-linear narrative and audacious revelations.

Ultimately though, it is the committed performances from the two lead actors that really help Nolan pull off his dazzling cinematic trick.
