  1. I enjoyed your perceptions of The Prestige, but I cannot resist pointing out that most of the complications for which you congratulate Christopher Nolan are actually taken from the novel. In fact, there are many MORE complications in the novel … but even so it remains comprehensible, and (I believe) does not cheat in the way the film sometimes does. It also has a completely different and much more horrific ending than Nolan’s. But I would think that, wouldn’t I?
    Cheers
    Christopher Priest (author of the novel, The Prestige)
    PS: I really like the movie, and consider it to be one of Nolan’s two best films.

    1. Thanks so much for taking the time to listen to our podcast.

      I guess you can say we fell into the common trap that many people have when they discuss a film. In cinema the director is seen as the auteur of the film, so when a movie is being critiqued, most of the focus in on the director. The majority of the compliments go their way, as do the majority of the criticisms. But what’s sometimes forgotten is that it takes a plethora of people to bring a movie to life.

      I’ve never read ‘The Prestige’, but I’m going to make it my mission to finally check out your novel, especially with the enticing idea of an ending that is even more horrific.

      Once again, thanks for taking the time to get in touch with us.

      Nick.
