Ep. 379: The Prestige (2006)

6Aug

On Ep. 379, we deliver an epilogue to our How Have We Never Covered... marathon with a redemption pick as voted by you, dear listener. The Prestige beat out 3 other finalists to gain a seat at the analysis table. Christopher Nolan's The Prestige was his last work before skyrocketing to new heights with 2008's The Dark Knight. A tale of dueling magician's willing to destroy themselves to one up the other, The Prestige is an er example of Nolan's work. We discuss the meta nature of Edison's presence in the film, Nolan's fascination with fridging, the absence of God, and Dustin performs a magic trick on air! You'll have to hear it to believe it!
