So... back to the Presitge...

Sure as a film it does seem more original than Inception, yet, you have to take into consideration that it wasn't original in the first place, it was based off of a book.

I just had a thought about the movie 'Primer', in which the doubling concept was used much the same way as in 'The Prestige'. And you also have two opponents working against each other along with their doubles. So for originality, I would have to go with Inception.
However, I don't claim to be a movie buff. Maybe the 'dream within a dream' idea has been used before in other movies?
