Honest Liar in TO

James Randi was in Toronto recently, sorry if you missed that, but if you are in Toronto area, you can still see his new movie in a theatre: An Honest Liar.

James “The Amazing” Randi is an 85-year-old magician and escape artist who has been enchanted with illusions from a young age. Dedicating his life to learning the tricks of the trade, Randi became a sensation who toured the world, always honest about being a “liar, cheat and charlatan.” When people start using the same tricks but calling themselves “psychics”—like spoon-bender Uri Geller or “faith-healing” like televangelist Peter Popoff—Randi is angry and afraid for the people who are duped. Devoting himself to a new cause, Randi follows the deceivers from city to city, publicly debunking their claims. But when the FBI arrests Randi’s partner of 26 years for identity fraud, the layers of deception become blurred.

Thems the perks of living at the centre of the universe, I guess 🙂

  1. Saw it with Randi in the audience! It is an amazing movie, even if you know nothing about him. Very moving. Nice to see that they are putting on 20 showings in August.
