I have just watched The Prestige. It was such a good movie!!! Everyone has been telling me this but finally i managed to give my own comments. My sister was telling me that i might not like this movie as i am the lazy audience, just want to enjoy myself and not to think too much about what's going on in a movie. However, i definitely enjoyed myself watching this one! After watching the movie, there are so many questions in my head!!! Is it the same for everyone?
Don't read the following part if u haven't watch the movie~~~I won't be responsible for your loss ok hahaha...
Some of my questions are:
1. Does Borden already has a twin brother or he duplicate another him through Tesla?
When approached by Angier to produce a machine, Tesla did mention to Angier that he has produced such a machine before but he did not specify whether it is for Borden or not. If Borden is aware of Tesla's capability of creating the impossible machine, why would Borden offered Tesla's name to Angier, wouldn't he be a afraid that Angier might become more powerful than he is? Also, remember the scene when Sarah said no to Borden when he asked for a cup of tea at her house, the next minute when she opened the door she found another Borden already in the house. This was quite early part of the movie, does it mean that it was a duplicate or the twin brother?
2. In the last part of the movie, Borden told Angier that Cutter knew about this. When is it that Cutter discovered Borden's twin brothers?
Cutter knew from the starting as he is the one who hired Borden to work for him? or only later part of the movie?
3. Why did Borden said he don't know what knot he tied when he went to Julia's funeral?
One possibility could be that it was not Borden but its Fallon who tied the knot the other day. This question is again linked to the question num1, whether Borden already has a twin brother or only later on he managed to have a duplicated created by Tesla. He could also said he don't know what knot he tied to protect himself as he know for sure Angier will be taking revenge against him.
4. Is that correct that the original Angier has already died?
During the first performance, the original Angier dissappeared in the air and accordingly dropped into the water tank. This mean that the Angier after the first performance are all duplicate.
5. Was the whole murder thing to set Borden up or just that Borden walked in by accident?
I think it is a set up, why he agreed to perform 100 times bearing in mind the pain of killing himself everynight..he has to wait~ wait for Broden to walk into his trap..don't u all think so?
That's all for now..if anyone has any view to share , feel free to put in your comments!!!
