The Prestige

February 4, 2013

We talked briefly in class about Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige.

The Prestige

 

The film certainly counts as science fiction, though it does so from a more than slightly peculiar direction since it takes place in the late 19th century. More importantly  it contains a nice treatment of some of the problems for personal identity which are raised by transporter-type thought experiments. And, as was pointed out in class, quite a lot of it is set in Colorado Springs.
