Recommended Viewing: The Prestige

How much do I LOVE this movie?

It has wonderful actors - Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Michael Caine (love Michael Caine), Scarlett Johansson, Piper Perabo and I just discovered that David Bowie played one of the characters.

The story line is excellent and the editing is tight, almost stingy. There's not a scene or a single bit of dialogue wasted. If a character makes a statement, or if an object is shown, it will absolutely have a bearing later on.

I loved everything about this movie. Every character was convincing and Bale and Jackman are extremely intense as rival magicians. This is definitely one to add to the collection.

What do you think?
