    What a really great underrated movie that was. I had seen it in a while and just recently bought the movie and boy do I love it. Script, direction, acting, everything was great. This is my favorite Nolan movie he did outside of the Batman Trilogy. Perfecto.

    Thought it was great movie too. It had a haunting effect on me as I couldn't quit thinking about it for a couple of days.

    Yes this was a great flick. Nolan has done some great stuff even going back before people knew who he was. He doesn't have a huge filmography but the stuff he has done is pretty great. Just look at these four films. All awesome.

    Inception

    Memento

    I know he has done other stuff too but these are his best.

    I love The Prestige too, but I think another magic/mystery movie that came out at the same time was a little better. Anyone else see The Illusionist?

    The Ed Norton one? I love how that always happens where two very similar movies come out at the same time. But I usually only see one of them.

    Armageddon - Deep Impact
    Tombstone - Wyatt Earp
    Prestige - Illusionist

    And just this year
    White House Down - Olympus Has Fallen

    LOVE that movie. The second it ended, I turned to my wife and said, "We have to watch it again!" One of my top 10 movies of all time.

    Nolan seems incapable of making anything but brilliant films. His brother is incapable of writing them, or writing great TV screenplays as well. Love Person of Interest. JJ Abrams would be wise to work with him more.

    I just adore this movie, plus my favorite actor ever is in it, Christian Bale. NOlan out does himself for sure.
