The Prestige
The Prestige
Directed by: Christopher Nolan

Starring: Hugh Jackman
Christian Bale

Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman play rival magicians who were once friends before an on-stage tragedy drove a wedge between them. While Bale's Alfred Borden is a more skilled illusionist, Jackman's Rufus Angier is the better showman; much of the film's interesting first half is their attempts to sabotage--and simultaneously, top--each other's tricks. Even with the help of a prop inventor (Michael Caine) and a comely assistant (Scarlett Johansson), Angier can't match Borden's ultimate illusion: The Transporting Man. Angier's obsession with learning Borden's trick leads him to an encounter with an eccentric inventor (David Bowie) in a second half
that gets bogged down in plot loops and theatrics. Director Christopher Nolan, reuniting with his Batman Begins star Bale, demonstrates the same dark touch that hued that film.

Running With Scissors [SOUNDTRACK]

Running With Scissors [SOUNDTRACK]

Can't get enough of 1970s-themed soundtracks? Here's another one! Like most of its period brethrens, Running With Scissors starts with a stock made of familiar hits ("Blinded by the Light," "Bennie and the Jets," "Year of the Cat"); it then adds a splash of lesser-known songs by big acts (10cc's "The Things We Do for Love") and a pinch of slightly older tunes for taste (a pair of Nat King Coles and Vince Guaraldi's "O Tannenbaum," from A Charlie Brown Christmas).
