57 the prestige (nolan, 2006)

I refuse to withdraw all the nasty things I've said about him. I gave Memento a hard, optimistic second try in 2005, and liked it less than ever; Batman Begins and Insomnia are disorganized bores. Yet out of this rubble emerges a very likable (if not quite great) The Dark Knight and…this puzzling, overloaded, meaty film. I suppose I'll keep an eye on him: good filmmakers have emerged from humbler roots.
