Really? That sensitive over nothing? it wasn't even a demand... it was more like a way of saying... Wasn't rude or anything lol

So what that has to do with anything I said? Just because it's a form of literature doesn't mean that the same "laws" are applied in it's case...

Well you brought up at least 5 or 6 and mentioned "and others" that The Prestige has so... Another thing is the "themes" you brought up exist and are well approached in like tens of movies... Something being common loses it's importance... It's simple math which proves that many of those could barely have the literary status of "theme" in a movie since theme it's something important, the main idea that deals with the whole narrative package.
The Prestige is a rich film in many aspects but barely in themes. That's all I have to say. There are really FEW movies who are rich theme-wise. One of them is 2001: A Space Odyssey. If Prestige is rich then I guess 2001 is Richer than Rockefeller.
