... a machine from Nikola Tesla (David Bowie) during Tesla's time in Colorado Springs. ... "My Inventions" - a short movie about Nikola Tesla.
... Something Sour, Something Sweet: The Prestige/The Illusionist (2006
Christopher Nolan proffers a tricky tale of two rival illusionists who commit themselves to topping and sabotaging each other in turn-of-the-last-century London.
Odd, but brilliantly so. It's a small film that feels big, a period drama that looks modern, defying comparison to anything but Nolan himself.
Christopher Nolan's movie is a smart, intriguing tale of deceit and obsession.
