Finally, Christopher Nolan made a DVD with normal menus. As such, there aren't as many features as on the Memento or Batman Begins DVDs. You really have a choice between art galleries or a multi-part documentary.

DVD Review: The Prestige

The documentary is your standard thematic, behind the scenes discussion, but I'll take it. At least I know what I'm getting. I've still never watched Memento in forward order because I can't stand that freaking psych test!

Of course there's a lot of the actors congratulating each other for making such an effective thriller. Any time the name Hitchcock comes up, I sort of tune out. They also talk around the issues a lot. They keep saying the film achieves twists and metaphors, but they're only talking about that. It's okay to get specific. We've already seen the film once we own the DVD. We don't watch the extras first. But at least it's not some labyrinth of menus, so it can be as banal as it wants to be.

The Prestige is out on DVD now.
