The hubby and I watched our rented copy of the last year's The Prestige last night, and it was astonishingly good. Do yourself a favor and rent it up for the weekend. It will be a few hours well spent. I really enjoy a movie that allows me to think, and rewards me for doing so.
Christopher Nolan directs this film in contrast to Ridley Scott's handling of Gladiator; in which Scott beats the audience with the idea that gladiating is like T.V. and yet another opiate for the masses, without developing that idea to a higher stage.
Well, that's it. The Prestige = great.
