1 – At the end, Angier really dies? I don’t really care whether it’s the REAL him or some duplicate, but I was always wondering that… Because I thought it might be possible he used the machine one last time and therefore is still living.. Since they showed us a tank of a copied Angier.. But then again, I guess that’s where they stored the numerous dead copies, and also I don’t remember what the narrator was saying at the end.. What was he saying?
2 – Why did Borden send Angier to see Tesla? Borden was using his brother anyway, so it’s not like he knew Tesla had a machine that could teleport anything. Was it just to send Angier off track?
Oh wait – Borden was pretending Tesla made him a machine, right? That’s why he sent Angier??
Yes, Angiers really dies at the end. The point of showing us the dead copies is to make sure we all got that.
Don’t recall what the narrator was saying at the end.
Borden didn’t actually send Angier to see Tesla. TESLA was the key to Borden’s “journal”, “Fallon” (Borden’s twin) was missing, and Borden knew that Angier had him. (We learn that Angier had buried him alive.) Borden told Angier “Tesla” was both the key AND the secret to get rid of Angier.
