THE PRESTIGE: another Christopher Nolan film. this one, a period piece, so there are great sets and costumes (particularly the ones for Scarlet Johannson). plus magic tricks and spooky electrical effects!
The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. - The Prestige
