movie review: _The_Prestige_

An excellent, though extremely dark and brooding, movie. If you're clever, you'll pick up the major plot turns about halfway through the movie, but you'll (at least, I did) remain captivated enough to simply "oooh!" to yourself and keep watching.

One warning, though: the trailers make this movie appear to be a story about stage magic vs. real magic. That, it is not. It is a complex story, and not a pretty one - you may or may not choose to cast any of its characters as villains, in your own mind, but you almost certainly won't cast any as heroes. This is a story about brooding, malignant obsession, through and through.
