As a birthday interlude in the middle of the X-Men commentaries, Chris has selected the Christopher Nolan's The Prestige as his birthday film of 2015 (And we still keep the Hugh Jackman streak going!). An adaptation of the Christopher Priest novel of the same name, The Prestige had been in development alongside Insomnia but Nolan tabled the film when he got the nod to do Batman Begins. Reunited with that film's Christian Bale and Michael Caine, he adapted the tale of dueling magicians in the late 19th century and convinced David Bowie to take what would be his final film role. Listen as the boys revisit this overlooked classic!
