    Because they were watching the Illlusionist ... meanwhile in The Prestige ... the machine worked..

    They just stuck on the fact that it was the 18 hundreds and chris nolan's "realism" over the fact thats its a movie.... it can be science fiction but still grounded in reality..

    Hell everything we use today in our reality was at one point a science fiction thought ...

    yup. dude kept killing his duplicates and I think he ended up killing himself (true self) which is why he got betrayed by his master. dude knew that was not the same dude when he decided to destroy the machine.

    No the Machine made duplicates but whether the original would come out where was random
    Hence the line Robert Angier: Would I be the man in the box or the prestige?

    Everytime he was drowning himself. It was his obsession with magic and performing fro the audience
    Also some day he was punishing himself because he felt guilty his wife drowned. And he wanted to feel the same.

    I got this movie at Blockbuster for like 6 bucks on Bluray. watched it with my mom a few weeks ago and she hated it. it was too dark for her but to me this movie is one of the best.

    great idea... i mean when you really think about it.. the entire movie was recreated from the readings of two diary's.. and both of those could have been completely fake... we know borden's was, why not angier

    but here's a little bit of the question section:

    Those "explanations" are far more far fetched than the evidence that the machine did work. :mjlol:

    The only thing that proves is that machine may not have worked. Absent definitive comments from Nolan himself, I gotta say the machine worked.
