Movies I LoveThe Prestige

“  Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call “The Prestige”.”

The Prestige (2006)

Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first
part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something
ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this
object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed
real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't. The
second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary
something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're
looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course
you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want
to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making
something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back.
