The Pledge, The Turn................ The Prestige

It's always quite a scary affair to watch a movie which had been tauted with so much anticipation and expectation as most of the time it will turn out flat. However The Prestige is certainly not one of them. Helmed by the ever dependable casts of Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johannson and Michael Caine, and directed by Christopher Nolan and written by him and his brother, The Prestige is indeed a prestige itself.

Tight storyline with nicely layered plot intertwined with lots of flashback, it's gripping with suspense and what's-next's anticipations. Love the fact the characters were all human, e.g. not overly pure black and white with substantial amount of flaws which indeed brings them to life.

Are you watching closely? You better be...
