The Prestige

I'm still digesting this one. Astonishingly well made, compelling acting, great plot with surprising twists (tho' not all the surprises took me by surprise, if you know what I mean). But I'm left feeling just a little empty. I'm not sure if there is a coherent point to it all. In the end, there is nobody to like or affirm. So I'm just not sure if it is orthodox or not. But well worth watching, all the same, even if it is only as a portrait of things to avoid. Lots of things will remain in the memory from it.
