Movie - The Illusionist

Recommended Posts

Okay, just got back from seeing this. It's in limited release right now, but it was excellent. Great performances by Edward Norton and Paul Giamatti. Jessica Beals was okay. She didn't add anything amazing but she didn't drag the movie down either. I enjoyed again seeing one of my favorite under-appreciated actors, Rufus Sewell (see Dark City if you haven't).

I don't have the technical resources to be too specific about how the lighting and cinematography worked, but I thought everything looked really good.

9/10

Yeah, I thought it was quite good. Man, those illusions were something.

However, I still don't know how he did the one with the 'ghost' like figures. I mean, how he had the boy wandering outside, made himself disappear etc. The movie - conveniently - didn't explain that. Maybe he did have some mystic powers?

I think that Edward Norton is the most underrated actor or our time.

Here, here. I will see pretty much anything with him in it because he's not just talented, he's good at picking projects to work on. I'm also pretty sure that most of the time his movies aren't going to be same old formula stuff.

Good stuff all around, nuff said.
