So, last night I watched "The Prestige" and I loved it! In fact it made my brain work so hard that I was up half the night tossing and turning in bed! I have to admit that I liked it better than "The Illusionist" (sorry Grace) but both are really good movies. I've been slightly obsessed today, reading about the movie and trying to get it all figured out...I never will. But I found some interesting things, so if you are a fan of the movie, click here, here, or here. You can also click here to meet Derek Selinger...a guy I went to Bible College with and an illusionist who is coming into his own. On a side note, I had an interesting conversation with a lady at the church today. I mentioned I was up late last night watching this movie and I tried to explain the plot to her. She said that she believed that illusion is deception and that it is unacceptable. I think that illusion (in the context of watching an illusionist) is art and very entertaining, although you get into some borderline stuff like Criss Angel and David Blaine...I know they are just illusionists but they use very dark images and present themselves as evil...I don't agree with that. What do you guys think? Deception or entertainment?
