David Bowie was pretty awesome as Nikola Tesla, and Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman are great leads. They put a lot of passion and borderline madness into their performances, which gives the movie a lot of edge.

btw; anyone hear what the Dixie Chicks movie did at the box office? In 14 days, “Shut Up and Sing” has taken in $174,891. Maybe they should take their own movie titles advice.

And yes, David Bowie is stellar in the film.

In any case, 175k isn't too terrible for a documentary that probably cost half that.
I didn't see The Prestige. I saw The Illusionist. WORST FILM OF 2006

I prefer your ending Peter and I think I'll retain that image but I suspect you didn't care much for the Prestige.

watched this yesterday. i've seen it before, but this time it was very confusing. so David Bowie's Tesla machine makes clones? but there are also twins?
