Stealing magic has become a commonplace crime. Teller, a man of infinite delicacy and deceit, decided to do something about it.

This is awesome:

"Sometimes magic is just someone spending more time on something than anyone else might reasonably expect," Teller says.

I loved that line too. :)

Is that a deliberate practice mantra?

Magic is supposed to inspire:

"A great trick, like a great song, should be an inspiration," Steinmeyer says. "It should lead you to other things that are also wonderful. That's what happens in literature, and it happens in music, and it happens in art. But in magic, they don't do that. They just take it. You would hope that what you do inspires, but instead it just inspires theft."

You should watch the prestige.

I enjoyed the preview:

Looks like Inception but with Magic instead of Dreams.
