      I have to say that each of Christopher Nolan's works needs to be read several times. When I first brushed it, I just looked for the secret, just looking for the secret, but not really looking. So after reading it, I am still puzzled, and I still don't understand anything, so I have two brushes and three brushes... n brushes, so that many grass snakes and gray lines gradually come to the fore.

      deadly magic

      A very classic movie. I saw a lot of analysis on the Internet and felt that there are many problems. I will do a little personal analysis here. With Borden as one of the nicer twins (likes Sarah) and Fallon as the stronger twin (likes Olivia). 1. At first I thought it was Bourdain who was accused of murdering "Angel", because he was very concerned about his daughter's ownership from his imprisonment, but when he asked his brother for forgiveness when he pointed out that Angel was not dead, it...

      Christopher Nolan + Christian Bale + Hugh Jackman + Rebecca Hall + Scarlett Johansson Because of belief, what can we sacrifice? self. Regarding the magic of pigeons, children can see the truth at a glance, "one must have been killed", indeed, this is a routine of killing one and staying. Just like in "The Emperor's New Clothes", only children dare to tell the truth, and only children dare to use naivety to break through reality. We played roles with each other, exchanged, experienced each...

      Only dedication and sacrifice can achieve greatness

      I have been making up for this brain-burning suspense drama for the great god Nolan, but I didn't expect it to be more of a sci-fi drama with a brain hole. Fortunately, I didn't read the film review, otherwise the sentence "Twin Batman vs. clone Wolverine" will give you the bottom line.
      But even if there is a psychological gap between genre films, the great narrative technique and complete script guarantee a good viewing experience. Various foreshadowings and foreshadowings echo before and...

      Nolan's genius-like non-linear narrative came to an end after this film, and he was also consecrated after this film. The narrative structure of this film has completely surpassed that of just a few short comments and can be explained. Everything has to be watched. Why? Because don't watch this film, it's just about the confrontation between two magicians. In fact, this film is essentially a magic trick, and the definition of the so-called "sacrifice" throughout is also quite...
