This movie is amazing. I was fortunate enough to see a screening at The Nuart Theater in West L.A. that Ricky did a Q&A for. Even before he took the stage, I was in love with this movie. Hearing his stories about Cardini, Max Malini, Charlie Miller and Dai Vernon, I was in absolute magic nerd heaven. Hearing about Vernon loved to play his students against each other, I wanted more than ever to get a time machine and head to meet this amazing performer. Even with all the amazing mentors I've been lucky enough to have in my life, I was insanely jealous of the fact that Ricky Jay spent the time he did with what are some of the absolute best magicians in history.
I have to say again that I love this movie, though I admit it may just because I can be such a magic nerd. The movie is available through Netflix streaming, so I recommend watching it and please let me know in the comment section what you thought!
