    In my opinion, "Prestige, The" is Christopher Nolan's best film, despite it being almost 20 years old.

    It spins itself into too many unnecessary turns, and the story of the magicians who have almost killed each other out of greed - ultimately becomes so emptied out that the concentration slips away. - Petter Hegevall

    Although I feel that it is in this episode that the film falters, it cannot be denied that Nolan has not forgotten how to work magic with film. Abracadabra! - Jakob Åsell

    In the end, one can no longer see where the story's illusion number ends and the film medium takes over - which is of course the intention. - Maaret Koskinen

    We who look understand that they want to deceive us, but it is difficult to guess how. "Prestige, The" is skilled at bewildering, in a fascinating way. - Jens Peterson

    Thanks to the creeping madness in both Bales' and Jackmans' eyes, one can endure that they are otherwise not particularly profound. - Jenny Rickardson
