1985 - The Prestige
My son has become quite interested in magic, and we were watching some David Blaine stuff on the weekend and it made me desperate to re-watch this. I love the idea of magicians - part con-arts, part showman - it's a very exciting and thrilling thing. This film features a fantastic cast set amongst this tragic story of greed and pride. I love the way that Nolan weaves the story in and around - he's playing a beautiful magic trick on you of his own.
If you like films that make you think and keep you guessing, this is easily one of the best. Top notch entertainment with a lot more going on beneath the surface. A must see :)
