      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...

      death in replication

      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...

      #梦里影报# Daily Recommended Movies: Nolan's "Deadly Magic" is a magic feast for the movie. Small and even details may become the track of the plot development. The rigorous logic is used to create an excellent magic. The suspense and thriller of the film made the audience inadvertently fall into the ingenious ideas created by the director, and what was finally shocked was that "we chose to be...
