The Prestige Movie Review (9.5/10)

Posted on May 13th, 2007 filed in Movie Reviews


Borden (Christian Bale) and Angier are stunt assistants for famed magician Milton, whose illusion ‘Ingenieur’ is wizz Cutter (Michael Caine). A freak stage accident results in the drowning death of Milton’s stage girl and Angier’s wife, Julia (Piper Perabo). Angier blames her death on Borden having tied her hands with a stronger than usual rope knot.

The two men part ways and engage on separate stage magic careers. Borden meets and marries Sarah and becomes a father following the birth of their daughter, Jess. Angier , eternally miserable and obsessed by his wife’s premature death, crashes Borden’s Magic show by sabotaging his ‘Stop the Bullet trick’ and causing him to lose three of his fingers.

Angier teams up with Cutter and starts a magic show of his own only to have that destroyed in turn by Borden. The rivalry and animosity between the two continues unabated. When Borden unveils ‘The Transported Man’, his teleportation masterpiece, he wins the London crowd and amazes the ever obsessed Angiers leading that latter to declare an all out effort to unveil the ‘Transporter’ secret and engineer a better illusion.

A 10 year study at Vancouver General Hospital, Canada, showed that getting less than 5 hours of sleep a night will affect one’s heart on the long run. Fatigue iuncreases the level of fibrinogen, the blood clotting protein, which reduces the blood flow to the heart and brain. 8 hours of sleep is thought to be optimal.

Another study by Columbia University showed that lack of sleep will permanently increase your blood pressure. The study found that less than 5 hours of sleep per day increases the incidence of high blood pressure by 60%. Sleeping less raises your 24 hr blood pressure and heart rate, which, through increased strain, can set up the cardiovascular system to persistently operate at an elevated pressure.

Exercise in the evening will lower your core body temperature and help you fall asleep faster.
