Slightly above the level of being a promotional puff piece, but not a huge amount better than that
12 July 2007 | by (Birmingham, UK) – See all my reviews

I had quite enjoyed The Prestige (albeit not to the point of hysteria as some seem to) and it interested me sufficiently to check out this off the DVD extras. Although it has a touch of "promotional extra" about it, the short film does it in just about enough detail (maybe not the right word) to be more than that. Split into four or five short sections by topic, the film looks at the making of the film, the character of Tesla, the use of hand-held cameras etc. As such it does work on a basic level but really when you consider how well written and delivered The Prestige was, it probably did deserve better than this.

The contributions cover a range of people and, unusual for this sort of thing, it is actually a problem to have too many people with too little time to speak each. Nolan is of course interesting, while contributions from novelist, cinematographer, set designer etc are all shorter but worthwhile. Bale talks sense Jackman doesn't sound like he is saying his own words while, like the film itself, Johansson just seems out of place. The general themes of the film are touched on but those who fill the message boards with grand theories about machines not working etc will be disappointed to learn that there is none of that here and, like the film itself, the chat is pretty forward.

Slightly above the level of being a promotional puff piece then, but not a huge amount better than that.
