This is the type of movie that watching just once will have no effect on a person. Once you really get into the story, understand the ending, understand the rest of the story, you really see it unraveling from back to front.

It's kind of like E, D, C, B, A where you have to know A to get B to get C etc. and you HAVE to watch it those times to be reminded of the events that happened that you just weren't watching closely for (<- wording was not accidental)

Probably Nolan's most engaging film. It sucks you in effortlessly. Very entertaining.

The more I watch this movie, the more I enjoy it. I really hope Nolan comes back to this genre again. It's been #3 on my list for a long time.

I feel like latter works by Nolan, Bale, and Jackman have each usurped the most impressive elements of this film and made it difficult to find so engaging. American Hustle actually undoes "the prestige;" the trick is too obvious now that we've seen Bale so many times, as Spacey ruined the trick to The Usual Suspects by repeatedly playing Spacey. Jackman's obsessed lead in Prisoners and Nolan's Inception simply outdo the film.
