Almost every time I watch a Christopher Nolan movie, I think, “Wow, this may be his best one.” The Prestige is no different. Nolan presents this story in such a unique way. If you thought he couldn’t come up with another original and imaginative way of presenting a story than he did for Memento, you’d be wrong. He takes you for a wild ride whenever he can.
These two movies are excellent but underappreciated. When people talk about Christopher Nolan movies, you’ll hear Memento mentioned because it’s what put him on the map, but Insomnia is hardly ever talked about. But it should be.
