Movie... Links... 183...

Went to watch The Prestige with my mom at The Cathay on Sunday morning... The movie is about 2 young magicians on the rise, Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) and Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman)... They were competitors and each tried their best to outwit and destroy the other... Their rivalry took both of them to the peak of their careers but both paid dearly for it...


The Prestige


The acting is superb and the movie is filled with twists and turns that will captivate you till the end of the story... You'll not know what to expect until the end... Christian Bale, one of my favorite actors, delivers a stunning performance as Alfred, the man who seemingly had some mental issues and loved magic with his life... The dedication Alfred has for his career and the sacrifices he makes are admirable... Hugh Jackman also gives a powerful performance as Robert, the man who is obssessed with destroying and outdoing Alfred... His quest in doing so costs him massive amount of money and unimaginable sacrifices... Michael Caine, as a great actor, helps in mystifying the audience without much effort...

All in all, the movie is wonderful and mesmerising... I'll definitely recommend everyone to watch it... Personally I'll give it a score of 9 out of 10... There is only 1 thing to be careful and that is the movie's non-linear narrative... So do not expect the movie to be told from beginning to end... Instead, let the movie take you to different places in the timeline and let the pieces of the story fall in place naturally...


I've added 2 links to Christian Bale's fansites under Links to Idols... They are Christian Bale's Unofficial Fansite and Awesomebale.Org - 24/7 Bale Fix... Please do support by visiting them... Thanks...


Today I'll be posting MVs of the songs 感情线 and Magic Room by 183 Club... Both songs are recorded in the 爱情魔发师 OST...

感情线 (Affective Lines) features all 5 of them singing and also scenes from 爱情魔发师... (link)
