Who’s Who in “The Prestige”? A Complete (Mental) Breakdown.

The Prestige (2006), directed by Christopher Nolan, is a very complicated movie, primarily because two of the main characters are much, much more than they first appear.

This blog post sets out to properly identify and explain, scene by scene, exactly who is who, and remove the mysteries.

Spoiler Warning:

Everything following refers to a massive, massive spoiler in the The Prestige. If you have not yet seen the film, I highly recommend you stop right here, and go watch it first.

You were warned.

Ocean’s Twelve EXPLAINED

This post contains spoilers.

I am sick, sick, SICK of people all over the internet talking shit about the fantastically intricate and rewarding experience that is Ocean’s Twelve, the sequel to 2001’s Ocean’s Eleven.

  • The twist ending makes the whole movie totally pointless

These complaints are all wrong, and everybody who believes them is just too stupid to understand the story. Yes I said it. The movie is genius. YOU are stupid.
