After accidentally killing his wife, Alfred Borden and Robert Angier become brutally competing magicians to see who can pull off the greatest trick of all. However, their rivalry becomes an obsession when people begin dying and friends begin getting hurt. Soon, however, Borden discovers the greatest magic trick of all… the Transported Man and Angier will do anything to obtain his secret. This is one of Nolan’s greatest films. Jackman, Caine and Bale fill it with outstanding performances and it’s a brilliant look into the mysterious world of magic, wizardry and technology. It tapes into the mind of an obsessive person and shows us just how black somebody can become when pushed to the edge.
