The Prestige

The Prestige ★★★½

Christopher Nolan's entertainingly facile thriller is more concerned with tricking you than making you care about any of the characters. As a result the movie disappears from your consciousness like a magic trick as soon as the credits roll. But with this cast, it's all easily forgivable.

A deceptively great performance by Christian Bale is worth watching again on its own.

Christopher Nolan keeps Michael Caine in a tea set and only lets him out to do one of his movies and any other movies Caine feels like appearing in that week.
