The 2006 film about rival magicians desperately trying to learn the secrets of each others tricks.
OVERMAN wrote:absolutely agree about Mr. Borden, in terms of personality I like the fact that he wants to do something new, something original, he's a true artist and understands the sacrifice behind his craft, to me he's all about "what" he gives to the world more than "why" he gives it, his conviction made him more obsessed about the art rather than for what or for whom the art is for. Now in the other hand we have Mr. Angier, I like the fact that he actually does it not really to be recognized but as he said at the end to see the audiences faces, to fool them, to make them believe, even for a minute that there are extraordinary things in the world, his showman side-what some people would see as artificial actually made him understand this truth.
This two sides, features or qualities are perfectly represented in the characters of this film and are in my opinion what makes a whole of an artist.
I honestly thought the majority would side with me on this one.
