Four cheers for writer and director Christopher Nolan, who never ceases to engage his audience from beginning to end with his dark tales.

As the magicians attempt various versions of "The Transported Man," you can't help but feel transported yourself to a time when magic was the big entertainment.

You wouldn't have guessed it from The Prestige's marketing, but this movie about rival Victorian magicians is actually a science fiction film . . .

Touchstone didn't put a lot of effort into the supplements; it wouldn't have been hard to conjure up a lot more material.

I just can't get over the sense of feeling cheated by the insertion of science/fantasy as the pivotal plot point -- an alien invasion would have seemed just as out of place.

DVD extra 'The Director's Notebook: The Cinematic Sleight of Hand of Christopher Nolan' is not what you might think.

The Prestige is A Bug's Life to The Illusionist's Antz, the intelligent Deep Impact to its silly Armageddon.
