The 2006 film about rival magicians desperately trying to learn the secrets of each others tricks.

My sole issue with the film is the ending credits. I loved the cut to black- and on my first viewing, which was after I saw TDK and Inception- I was saying, "YES! This is such a Nolan-type ending! It's perfect." Then "Analyse" started to play with the credits and I was like..."wait what?" The use of a sort of upbeat- although good- pop song WITH VOCALS as an ending for a period piece threw me off a little. I know, I know, Memento had "Something in the Air"- but it fit. It was a film set in the present, anyway. But for a 19th century film, a Thom Yorke song? What?
So yeah. That was pretty much my only problem. Yours?
