Great Moments In Film – The Prestige (2006)
A quick one as we end this cycle through the decades. This would be Christopher Nolan’s first appearance and, as I’ve said about a few people to show up in the feature, it won’t be his last. The Prestige is about two rival magicians (Borden played by Christian Bale and Angier played by Hugh Jackman) who (along with several personal issues) try to one-up each other at every turn, trying to create the most fantastic magic trick to date. At one point, Angier sets off from England to Colorado Springs in order to meet the famed scientist Nikola Tesla (David Bowie). It is Angier’s belief that Tesla can help him create a magic trick that will never be topped. This is Tesla’s introduction in the film. Pretty awesome, right?
I’ll be changing things up a bit starting next week. I definitely need to get back to writing reviews and whatnot.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
