I don’t normally write about movies, even though I like to watch them and even have Netflix and watch lots of them (especially animated ones by Hayao Miyazaki, but that’s another story). However, I recently watched The Prestige (which I enjoyed immensely; how could you not love a movie with Hugh Jackman AND Christian Bale AND David Bowie? I ask you.) And I almost wrote a post about it, it was that good.
Then today, I saw a headline that caught my attention:
So I don’t know if you saw The Prestige, and even if you did, if you remember the snide jabs that Bowie’s marvelous impersonation of Tesla made at Edison whenever he had the opportunity. But this is just further validation that Edison was a seedy flimflammer who might have had a great idea but just HAD to cheat and lie to make sure he came out on top.
Bah. I’m going to
smash turn off all my lightbulbs now.
