Movie Endings Explained - The Prestige (video)

Movie endings, they're usually pretty straight forward right? Everything pays off, the main characters learn something, and our heroes ride off into the sunset. Sometimes though, we don't get the typical ending from a movie, we get something much more nuanced, complex and open ended. The kind of endings that leave things up in the air for all of us to debate and theorize on until we're blue in the face. With Movie Endings Explained, we aim to delve into some of the more ambiguous and mysterious endings to films that have left audiences scratching their heads for years, and to attempt to explain them. In most cases, a definitive answer isn't really there, so we definitely want to hear from YOU on how you interpret the various endings we'll be discussing with this series.

This time, we're looking at Christopher Nolan's 2006 mystery thriller THE PRESTIGE, starring Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale as rival magicians in 1890s London. The plot of the film is incredibly layered and concludes with a huge reveal, one that was telegraphed throughout the whole movie, if you were only looking to find it. THE PRESTIGE in my eyes, is a fairly underrated film in Nolan's very impressive filmography, with an exceedingly well planned out script and excellent performances. In this edition of Movie Endings Explained I look into the execution of the film's grand reveal, the different ending of the original novel, what the ending could really mean, and what clues were peppered in along the way!
