I'm sitting here, drinkin' and re-watching The Prestige on IFC, and it's been gradually dawning on me that it's easily my favorite movie. I feel like it's been a while since we've had a thread like this here, so why not?
Gun to your head, what's your favorite movie? And how come?
The Prestige for me, definitely. Every time I watch this movie I pick something new and exciting out of it. I love the themes, the dualities, and the way that Nolan plays with 'em. I love the analogy between Borden/Angier and the real life Edison/Tesla. Great performances throughout. Dark, nuanced, and with a hint of sci-fi. It's basically a perfect fit for me.
So what's yours? And, more importantly, what is it about you that draws you to it?
