    Quite possibly the most perfectly structured film I've ever seen. Every single thing comes full circle -- the birds, the diaries, the drowning, EVERYTHING.

    Decent thriller that seems to get more and more implausible and conusing until the reveal of what's really been happening, and then it all falls into place. Clever, but might test your patience around the end of the second act.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    On the surface, it is a hell of a yarn with a genius structure, mirroring the 3 phases of stage illusions. Yes, Borden's secret is a little obvious, but Nolan demonstrates that was merely a sly bit of misdirection when he blindsides you with Angier's much more horrifying one.

    Just below the surface though, Borden and Fallon's story explores the dilemma of being unable to devote yourself completely to both your art and your family (the 2 things which motivate…

    A bird dies in this movie its trash. Its also a terrible britsploitative Sherlock Holmes esque bullshitfest. But if these qualities aren't enough to deter you from watching it just keep this in mind: its directed by Christopher Nolan.
