I've wanted to see The Prestige (2006) ever since I first read about it. The combination Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale just appeals to me. ;-) Well, I finally had a chance to watch it on wednesday. As mentioned in The New York Times according to Metacritic:
Stuffed with hard-working actors, sleek effects and stagy period details, The Prestige, directed by Christopher Nolan from a script he wrote with his brother Jonathan, is an intricate and elaborate machine designed for the simple purpose of diversion.
I've also recently seen The Illusionist and like so many others initially compared the two, because of their subject matter. However that doesn't serve either, as both are completely different movies. So I won't. I will add a link to the Wikipedia entry for Nikola Tesla though, as he's so worth reading more about.
